I am a VA buyer in contract to purchase a home in CA. I paid for and scheduled home inspection and pest inspection was scheduled same day.
The seller did not remove personal items from garage which resulted in two incomplete inspections. We signed an addendum requesting the seller move the personal property and inspect the garage at her cost. She is now refusing to move anything and states the property will not be moved until the loan is funded. The pest inspection is incomplete due to her items in garage. This is a breach of contract correct? We still have 8 days to complete all inspections yet she will not allow reasonable access. Seller did not list as is. Buyer and Seller both represented by same real estate broker as well. ... more

There a agents that are only buyer or seller agents. Evidently, listing agent has any other agent from her office to represents buyers. This is not a Red Flag. It is just another agent in the same office. Offering to represent you as a buyer. Have you been working with another agent?If so should contact them let them know the interest in this home. Or do you feel comfortable with agent you met at Open House. The options are up to you. Most agents are buyer and seller agents.

In buyers purchase agreement should always include professional home and termite inspection. It is now custom for buyers to pay for both inspections. Payment of termite repair is negotiable. Repair/replacement items are negotiable, as well. There has to be a written agreement between buyer and seller in Purchase Agreement.

Dear c851009

I like to have everything in the home inspected. Hopefully, seller has agreed to inspection of foundation, electrical, plumbing and complete interior. Wonder why seller refuses roof inspection. Would it reveal additional problems with the home? It is your judgment call. I would be very cautious. With the cost of homes buyers should not be limited to what they can inspect in a home.

It would be less confusing for Escrow if you just start over with new contracts that include all the new information and signatures.

Remember also that your contractor has to comply to the latest building codes, which continue to evolve. This means there are additional considerations beyond the foundation your contractor will have to consider. Beyond that, depending on the neighborhood, accessibility to the property can be an issue, further raising the price of construction. ... more

AmyCastillo answered:
Hello, Are you obtaining financing or paying all cash. I ask because if you are obtaining financing the answer is actually very simple.
You should have a Pre Approval Letter from your Loan Agent that states how much you can afford. Most Seller's require you to provide this letter when making an offer on the home. So your real estate agent will not be able to put an offer on a home that exceeds your budget because your Pre Approval Letter will not match the offer.

Hope this helps :)

This is not possible to answer with much accuracy. I would recommend you contact a local Contractor for a good estimate. You can talk to more then one to find out what it will cost. Many homes need foundation reinforcement before you can build a second story on them. You also have to look at zoning laws as they pertain to your particular property. ... more

I would definitely recommend having the upgrades done. Pool renovation will greatly increase your home's value, so if you are planning to sell then you will want to take care of that. Filling in the pool wouldn't be the worst thing to do, but I don't think it would add as much appeal.

Yes, the price is true, but I just had a listing sit for several months and the seller didn't want to do a pirce adjustment. Low and behold, after we staged the home, we received multiple offers. It was crazy.
It honestly looked super nice before, vacant, but it just felt sterile and unwelcoming and dark.
Once it was staged, the wonder of the home came through.
i learned a valuable lesson that day!
