The first mistake you made was going with a home inspector that your real estate agent referred. This is considered an unethical practice and most reputable home inspectors will not associate themselves with realtors due to the conflict of interest.

Can you say this for *all* real estate agents? Our agent is working for us, referred by a good friend. She is recommending an inspector to come out three times during the building of our new home - once after the foundation is laid, before the walls go up to inspect wiring, and at completion I believe. I might tend to think your statement could be true in the case of a seller's agent.
