I have a house located in the heart of downtown Rodeo, a block away from the beautiful San Pablo Bay. It is a mixed use, zoned commercial/residential. Very charming.

I always explain to my Seller that there are 2 negotiations when selling their home. The first is the price and terms to get the property into escrow. The second is the repair request after the inspection. Here is your dilemna: with that much in repairs, do you have money in hadn to make the repairs when escrow closes? A discounted price doesn't help you if you don't. The credit can help, but be aware, the lender will not allow credits to be more than 6% of the sales price and if the credit is substantial enough (listing it as repairs), it may cause a red flag for the lender to not lend on the property. The safest bet is always to have the seller make the repairs prior to closing, that way you won't have to deal with them. I tend to recommend to my clients that all safety and health issues be repaired or corrected and then come to an agreement on the other items. Hope this helps.... more
