Here’s how I saved a home seller $20,000 with a second inspection opinion.

Would you rather spend $600 or $21,000 to fix something in your home? Today I’ll share a dilemma I faced during a recent seller transaction so that it doesn’t happen to you.

To start, we received an offer on our seller’s property. The buyer went out to do the inspection and came back with $21,000 worth of foundation repairs. Neither the buyers nor the sellers wanted to negotiate who would pay for this, so we decided to bring out a structural engineer to look at the house and get a full report.

“This situation doesn’t always have the same result.”

The report concluded that the home didn’t need all the foundation work that the buyer’s inspector initially thought. We turned a $21,000 repair bill into a relatively inexpensive $600 inspection fee.

This isn’t the first time something like this has happened to me, and it didn’t have the same result. That’s why it’s so important to hire an experienced agent who knows what to do in situations like this.

If you have any questions for me about inspections, selling a home, or anything else related to real estate, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
