Question
I am on my third try.  How do I pass the home inspection?

Answer
I guess I would need more information as to what you mean by "pass" inspection.  Is this with the same buyer---different buyers---jurisdictional inspection?  Home inspections involved with real estate sales aren't typically considered designed to pass or fail houses---merely to report on the condition of the house. If issues are resolved that should be the end of it.
