If I ever sell another house, I will be walking around with the inspector. I also don't have a mortgage so I will be more in control the next round.
Most buyers won't let a seller be present during an inspection.
Then they won't buy my house.

um, your mortgage holder has no say over the sale process of your house. Their only involvement is receiving the payoff check when you close.
That isn't what I meant. With no mortgage, I don't have any financial pressure to sell. I can keep my property as long as I wish to find the right buyer and I already have enough cash to purchase another property. So I can kick any inspector out of my house since I have total control.

That makes no sense. Having a mortgage or not having a mortgage is not relevant to home inspections or just about every other portion of house selling, until the payment/satisfaction of the mortgage. This is among the last steps.
Makes perfect sense to me. No mortgage equals no financial pressure to sell.
