The Seller probably has the same reasoning that a Lender would have;
They want you to have a "vested interest" in the property, so that you won't just walk away from it.
This is one of the main reasons that homeowners got in trouble these last few years.
The Seller would view your attitude as a lack of committment.

Hi Esbouchard,
That unit was taken off the market.
Are you still looking?

I would contact a local real estate professional to help with this answer and to save time and money.
(Not me, I'm on the Cape, but I can help you choose a local pro if you want help doing so.)

Two units there went through foreclosure and were quickly resold. If you are looking for similar quality to 110 Maple the only ones I have seen in Dedham in that price range are two now for sale at 32 Fairview Street...a gutted and totally rebuilt house with top-end finishes and a much quieter neighborhood (Oakdale) than Maple Place (with the post office across the street)... ... more

There is always inherent risks involved within the purchase of a home. Inspections are a valueable tool in limiting the risk factor.

WTS, 2 hopefully unbiased inspectors did not conclude that there was any major damage. Not to say that there is'nt any. (But, none positively noted at this time.) This is in your favor. If the contract price is low enough to off-set the possibility of excessive damage and getting a proper treatment and Hm. is located in a great area and the floor plan fits your families needs very well, -then I would still consider Buying it "IF" it were me personally. (There are NEVER any guarantees!)

But, I would try to negotiate some repair $$$, a Home warrantee and a Termite treatment into the deal.

Good Luck to you!

Hi Again!

Thanks for checking in with the responders! We always love to these questions to come full circle.

You mention your concern regarding homes that your current agent showed you (thanks for clarifying that the relationship is "implied" by the way). IF you end up moving forward on a home that agent #1 showed you...and he or she finds out...he or she may seek compensation. He or she may not be able to prove that he/she had "procuring cause" but just be aware that it could come up sometime down the line.

Keep us posted!
