Some problems such as cosmetic repairs are not required to be done in order for the deal to take place. However, problems such as structural failure or mold can cut into your profits. You’re required to fix the following problems:
Stucco problems: At the base of exterior stucco walls near the meeting of foundation and the sill plate, there is a “weep screed.” When water enters stucco through cracks, it enters the house wrap and goes down to the weep screed and out of the home. The problem is when concrete sidewalks or patios are poured higher than the weep screed, it renders this system ineffective and leads to water damage.
Grade sloping: This happens when water drains back from the yard toward the home. This leads to foundation movement and other problems.
Roof deterioration: Older homes often have roofing problems. As roofs age, this can sometimes lead to water damage which is very expensive.
So, you see the pattern here. Water damage and structural problems are the costliest repairs, but often the most common ones found in home inspection reports on older homes.
Other required repairs include:
Many people find themselves in over their head in expensive repair costs required by the home inspection and buyer. Some repairs are negotiable, but many are not. This can lead to a closing that fizzles before the seller’s eyes. Subsequently, this leads to the home being on the market for more days, weeks, or even months. This can be devastating to a seller who wishes to move quickly due to a job transfer, divorce, unemployment, or mounting debt.
