Should I offer lessI made an offer on a house and it was accepted. We signed a contract. In the contract there was no mention of the crack in the foundation wall and settling of part of the foundation. I had an inspection done and it was then that I found out about the problem. The estimate cost of repair is around $3500. It could cost more if the pier rods need to go deeper than 20 feet. They will insert 2 helical pier rods in the ground to stop the settlement. So this is a best case scenario estimate. They won't truly know until they begin the work. My question is should I offer less for the property due to my bid that was put in not knowing the crack and settlement problem? I'm concerned this situation may affect the resale value and any growth in equity. I don't know if she is going to pay for the repair or try to negotiate price.August 22 2013 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
