“When Homeowners Agree to Make Repairs”
We know there are a number of repairs that the property needs and we are asking the sellers to take care of this work prior to the purchase. He has indicated that he can handle any and all repairs.
We were told there were two previous buyers, but deals fell through.
We have the 3.5% for down payment and the amount for the home, the inspection and appraisal, but do not know how much more we will need? Have discussed a gift from our parents, we want to give them good numbers. Let us know at your earliest convenience. Thanks Joe!
Unfortunately, not all sellers will follow through with agreements when it comes to repairs. Sometimes a home seller will do attempt to make these repairs, but results sometimes leave much to be desired. Having a re-inspection done is recommended in these situations, unless a knowledgeable trust person is available to view the repairs.
