interested in vacant home--absent ownerMy husband and I are interested in a home that has been vacant since 2009. It's an older house (19th century). The house needs a new roof (water leaking damaging the plaster on second and down to the first floors) etc. My concern is the house has been on the market forever and the owner lives in another state. While they have been told about these issues, I dont' think they realize how bad the situation is. Would it be out of line to submit pictures with our offer and contractor's estimates? We don't want to infuriate them, we would just like a reasonable negotiation, and since the house is overpriced AND has sat on the market for years, I'm worried that reasonable is not in our future. Thanks?
