While the inspection findings can be used to request repairs or credits, and potentially even a price reduction on the home, you should realize the seller has zero obligation to fix anything. The asking price of the home may already reflect the issues and the property’s condition. Your real estate agent will help you as much as possible in negotiating repairs or credits. And we can refer good realtors; we often do. Sometimes in these situations, the seller is in no hurry to close or move. Maybe they’ve already had multiple offers on the table. Most of the time, the purchase contract will allow you to opt out of your offer if negotiations for repairs or credits do not yield the desired result. Understand and know your purchase contract fully, especially as it relates to property condition. Lean on your experienced real estate agent and your lender for quality feedback during your negotiations. Ask us how.
