70 % Of ALL Homes in Texas Will Need Foundation Repair!

 I was surprised to hear that 70 % of all homes in Texas will need foundation repair at some point. Wow... that seems like a  BIG number! I heard this surprising statistic at a recent training on foundations I attended with  Perma Pier Foundation.   Don't let that number scare you! I have seen thousands of homes over my 12 year real estate career , while surprising, I do think this number is accurate. Alot of homes, newer and older,  I show or list for sale have settlement and I always recommend an evaluation by a reputable company like Perma Pier Foundation.

 They will give a free evaluation !  

I also think foundation repair is not a negative but a positive when it comes to selling your home. Most buyers are okay with purchasing a home with foundation work if it is done with the following : 

  • Work is completed with a reputable company who is still in business 
  • A post plumbing test was done and no leaks were found 
  • A Structural Engineer's Report is available for review
  • There is a transferable lifetime  warranty to the new buyer

Texas soils vary with black clay, sand & even red dirt. So know your soil and if you think you need foundation repair call Perma Pier Foundation for a free evaluation. If you are selling your home, you may qualify for payment to the foundation company at the sale date.

That is a huge percentage!  Maybe I should move to TX and get in the foundation repair business.

Mel Ahrens, MBA, Kelly Right Real Estate yes we have many choices for foundation companies, I try to help my clients choose the ones that have been here a long time and have transferable warranties. 

William Feela the foundation issues aren't really hidden.  You can tell when you walk in  a home if there are foundation repairs needed. Most sellers know they will have to repair to sell too.
