Tim Moore answered:
Should I buy a home with chimney foundation failure? How much could I negotiate after the home inspection?

Saw an 'affordable housing' condo in Natick below market value and I have to sell it for less than market value. What issues may this cause?
If you meet the criteria to buy it, then it can be great. It's yours and when you decide to move, someone else will meet the criteria.
