We have all heard the saying “Buyer Beware”, but what about “Seller Beware”. Sellers should be aware of one of the most common reasons that a sales contract falls apart. Home Repairs are a leading cause of contract "fall through".
In the State of Louisiana, buyers have a right to a Home Inspection. During the Home Inspection deficiencies may be discovered. At that point, the buyer has a right to "back out" of the contract or request repairs.
Sellers should not take home repairs lightly. The condition of your home plays a critical role in you getting to the closing table. When a contract falls through it can be quite a devastating blow.
I strongly recommend that sellers make all repairs to their home prior to listing it for sale. This may help keep you from having a contract “fall through”.
