I'm trying to buy a house in the mid-7's that was last updated 20 yrs ago. However, it's been gently used and is in older but move-in condition. My broker is giving me advice but also wanted to get some more opinions about these two things
1) The roof has had some repairs but only has 2-3 yrs of life left in it according to inspector and a general contractor I got in
2) The tiles in the driveway and front of the house need to be replaced as they are sloping towards the house instead of away
Apart from the above, the inspection report has things like electrical, some more ventilation required at spots, small area of mold, humidity in the bsmt due to no.2 probably but many of these are due to the age of the house
Are no.1 and 2 typically negotiable items? Would you usually have the seller pay about 50% of the cost to replace the above?
