Hi Uma,

As phrased, that is a loaded question. The presence of rock in a basement may deter some possible buyers in the future, all things considered; it's not really an asset. As to health, that is why you have a radon test performed. The results will let you know whether a mitigation system should be installed.

If you want to buy the property, and it has ben fairly priced, make a competitive offer based on what you know the current market values are - which is based on closed sales - thats what is important. If the property has deficiencies, and that affects your offer price, summarize those in a letter. Remember, the bank(s) has to approve the offer, not just the current occupant/owner. ... more

When or where are you talking about this purchase? If you are talking about the foreclosure auction, then the minimum bid will be posted with the sale notice, or you can get that info from the Committee for Sale.
If you are talking about after the bank has taken the property back, then there is no way to know except by making a written offer. They can then accept, decline, or counter offer.
Before making an offer, have an agent check comps to see what the house is worth. If you can justify your offer with facts, you have a lot better chance of getting it accepted.
