We are in the process of purchasing our first home. Our agent didn't see anything wrong with the house when we looked at it. We were expecting a roof replacement possibly in a few years, but not right now. However, the home inspection has determined that the roof is leaking and needs to be replaced now. It also determined that the compressor is 20 years old and it almost certainly needs to be replaced. The dryer is not working and there are many other issues (live wires in electric box) etc. that will require electrician work for safety. The hot water isn't working in the house (even though the heater seems to work). We are not nitpicking on the many cosmetic/ handyman related issues that were found. However, we were told by the agent that this is a home in move-in condition. We figured that into our pretty generous offer, which was quickly accepted by the seller. Can we reasonably expect them to negotiate price that we can make repairs on the major things - roof, A/C?
