Even if they did know about the appraisal it wouldn't matter. They would still need to get it appraised. It's the sellers loss until someone comes along and finds it worthy of the listed price. ... more

Unless the listing agent was the homeowner, they didn't lie to you. It's up to the homeowner to disclose known issues. It's the owner who fills out the disclosure, not the agent. The agent cannot tell you more about a house than their clients tell them. ... more

Especially since you have frozen ground back there, I would think that you would want to have the pool checked out! There could be cracks, the pump may not be working, or it needs repairs!

Most inground pools out here are taxed on property taxes. Do you want to taxes on something that ends up needing to be filled in with dirt! If you can't afford the inspection, you probably can't afford to maintain this house. ... more
