Realtors Buyer and Seller Information

Selling a home with foundation damage.


Understand you foundation
  1.       Call contractor for a free estimate, you will likely get a bid for piers.   Call me for a consult and you'll get a plan for a solution!

 What usually happens:

I have found that I often I get called after the home inspections have been done. Usually at that point, the sale has pretty much been lost. At best the buyers have called for a free estimate from a pier selling company.  Nine times out of ten will get a costly, most often unneeded, bid for repairs. Either way the sale is usually lost or the buyer wants a big discount. Unfortunately, after the fear of foundation damage has been introduced it is hard to show a buyer that the damage/estimate was greatly inflated or wrong.

At this point, usually all I can do is show the sellers how to avoid the problems for future buyers.

      What Should Happen: 

The client Realtor call me prior to their listing hitting the MLS. Then we are able to identify and handle any cosmetic issues that may exist.  My report will pre-empt unnecessary repair scares. It will be available to help the inspector understand anything that concerns them. This will keep earley viewers from walking away after seeing something that confuses them. This will greatly improve your chances of an offer from early viewers and successful closing on the first offers.  Call me for more information. Richard Rash 817-308-8186

   

   My reports, with copies placed for buyers to find, should explain any foundation abnormalities before the potential buyers is scared off.                                

Sale saved!
