In the process of doing a 2055 drive by with required floor sketch and no interior inspection, i had to go through the house (at the invitation of the homowner) to access the back yard in order to complete the measuring process. The home was supposed to have been "completely" remodeled, but as i am walking through the living room and dining area i dont see evidence of remodeling "complete" or otherwise. An interior inspection was not on the order, however i feel that it is my resposibility to report averything i see even though i was not ordered to do in interior inspection. The lack of remodeling will of course have a considerable effect on the final value estimate as opposed to a home with at least some updating. I could say that i did not do an interior inspection but did in the course of going through the home, not see any evidence of recent updating. The broker is now mad that i went into the house. Oh well, its not his license on the line.......... Am i headed in the right direction?
