LIST OF FAQ BELOW:
What would be some home inspection deal breakers?
As a Real estate agent, I cannot provide a definitive answer to what would be considered a deal breaker during a home inspection, as it can vary based on individual preferences and local building codes. However, I can provide some examples of issues that are commonly considered significant enough to potentially impact a home's value or safety:
Structural issues: Cracks in the foundation or walls, sagging roofs, or unstable floors are examples of structural issues that can be costly to repair and pose a risk to the home's stability.
Water damage: Water damage can cause mold growth, wood rot, and other problems that can affect the home's structural integrity and pose health risks.
Electrical and plumbing problems: Faulty wiring or outdated plumbing can be costly to repair and pose a safety risk.
Roof damage: A damaged or deteriorating roof can allow water to seep into the home, causing water damage and potentially leading to mold growth.
Pest infestations: Termites, rodents, and other pests can cause damage to a home's structure and pose health risks.
Environmental hazards: Asbestos, lead paint, and radon gas are examples of environmental hazards that can be costly to remove and pose health risks.
It's important to keep in mind that not all issues uncovered during a home inspection are deal breakers, and some may be negotiable with the seller. Ultimately, the decision to proceed with a home purchase should be based on a thorough assessment of the home's condition, potential repair costs, and personal preferences.
