To often the prospective buyer will base the homes present condition on a Home Inspection report the present home owner has from 3-7 years earlier. Remember it's not the same today as it was when they bought the home.We say "It's not what the professional has done, but it's what the homes handyman has done."
 
Estimates are not a condition of the home inspection.
