Just don't use the inspector your real estate agent recommends. They do not have your best interests at heart! Ask around for an independent inspector, I found one in my area that agents hated, he found eeeeeeverything and killed a lot of deals. I want to know all the ghosts in the closet before I sign!
its to let you plug in a 3-prong into a 2-prong outlet
99.9% of people will never bother grounding it
Yea, it doesn't make sense.

It looks like it's grounding to your outlet box, but if your outlet box is grounded, why not change out the outlets?

A prior owner of my house installed three 3 prong outlets in some rooms without bothering to ground them. Perhaps I can add these to double the non-grounding!

I have switched out several outlets (old, loose plugs), about four switches, four ceiling fans, and several other light fixtures. Of those, exactly ONE was grounded, and that's because it was so old it was probably installed by earlier owners than the ones who sold it to me.

Even better were the two light fixtures that were simply attached to bare wires -- no light/junction box at all. The bathroom light had a ceiling fan bracket on the inside of the drywall, pinning the fixture to the wall to hold it in place. The other one was a ceiling "boob" light that was loosely connected to a drop ceiling in the basement.

Basic home inspections are absolutely useless. For future reference. Big Grin

Found that an outlet in a bathroom was attached to the light and only worked when the light was on... with bare wires and wire nuts extending the line in the wall to get to the box for the outlet, which of course wasn't grounded. No inspector would have found that unless they plugged something in and turned the light on and off.

I've never had an inspector find anything meaningful.

Not everyone can have those options. In markets like SF Bay area, the houses are so scarce, you have to put the offer with zero contingencies. Even with that and having your ass on the line, you still have to compete with other offers or the cash offers. When sellers can sell homes without anyone poking their noses in to their nasty business, why would they bother to sell someone who comes with boat load of contingencies?
