How much might this home repair cost ?We finally got a house in a very good location . If you think the real estate mantra -- location, location, location -- it is ideal .... BUT -The house has some problems.First the good -- Roof is good (10 year)Heating system is good Remodeled kitchen with new appliancesBeautiful unfinished attic (the wood looks solid)Now the bad ---Most (10 double hung + 1 Casement) windows are rotten . This per se is not a big problem but I am wondering if there is possible rot beyond that (Inspector does not think so but cannot promise)A few of the wood shingle sidings are rotted (just about a layer) -- again , not a big problem but is there soemthing hidden ?HVAC Ducts -- In basement , the HVAC ducts are routed through concrete floor. These need to be routed through wall or ceiling. Older bathroom There are other problems like no landscaping, faded paint , old carpet (with hardwood under) etc which are cosmetic.We are getting it for at least 40 - 50 K lower compared to similar properties .. probably even more considering the location (cul-de-sac, near schools, near public transport, corner lot, enough land for expansion/landscaping) I know we will need to spend some money and we are ready for it.What is bugging me most is the rotted windows .... I am wondering how much the bad rot might have spread inside and trying to assess worst case scenario . Any help is very appreciated. If it helps, the house has wood shingles siding and siding are mostly good except for a layer where it is touching ground. The paint has faded but not something like blistering or peeling. I am a bit handy ... did not get a chance to work on home much but I enjoy working with tools, electricals, wood etc. Hopefully I will able to save some labor.
