Re: Foundation repairs - risks

I agree if you aren't handy you might not want to do this, but it sounds like quite a deal to me! I doubt there will be many or any counter offers, if there are they are probably low balls from flippers. So find out what the worst-case cost would be and make your offer based on that.

I recently bought a house with leaky foundations with bricks falling loose, questionable sill, wonky structure, holey roof, cracked plumbing, old electrical, etc. etc. It was really the only way I could afford this town. We made and offer, made it clear we weren't flippers, and got it. So far the assumed $20,000 in structural costs have not happened, so I guess we got a steal ;)
