I think going through different scenarios is really good to help you be more prepared. I hope to contract a home builder in the spring. I am really excited for the building to start. I think it is a wonderful time to build a home and I also think the advice here is going to help me as well as a lot of others. http://westpointgardens.com/... more
When may parents sold their home, they were the ones that paid for the inspection. Though the inspection is very important. It will tell you what might be potential wrong with the house and need to be fixed. It is also true that you look at the report and ask yourself if you can trust the company. Not everyone out there is trying to dupe people, but you should be cautious.
You can always ask. Normally if the water heater is not defective and still providing the service as expected there is no need to replace ( usually spelled out in the contract to purchase ). Talk to your agent .... more
Personally I would like a house more if it had solar panels. Solar panels can make electricity significantly cheaper. That is an invaluable benefit. I'm not sure if having the panels would exactly add value to the home. It would make sense if it did. Your best bet would probably be talking to a realtor or a solar technician. They would have much more knowledge when it comes to the perception and value of solar panels. I can't imagine it would be a negative addition at all though.

I guess I am also confused. If the seller got the estimate and the seller is doing the repairs, as long as they are done correctly, what do you care how much he paid for them. If you are paying for the repairs I would ask "why"? From my viewpoint it is almost always left to the seller to do the repairs if they are health and safety related. Cosmetic repairs are negotiable, but health and safety have to be done before closing and the seller should present a safe home to the buyer. Yes, we have had it come up that it gets negotiated if the seller is stubborn and the buyer wants the home bad enough, (or it could be a bank owned property that the bank will only sell "as is").... more
