One of the more treacherous parts of an escrow is the home inspection and request for repairs. Often times the buyer thinks that the home inspection is a “checklist” of what needs to be fixed while the seller either thinks their home is perfect or “it was just fine for us so why does the buyer need things that work fine upgraded or repaired”. Finding middle ground isn’t always easy.
As the graphic below shows, 80% of home inspection reports show at least something needing to be fixed. We always recommend to both our buyers and sellers to be reasonable. On the buyer side stick to actual problems or repairs. If it’s an issue that the buyer will have to immediately pay for to have repaired…it’s a reasonable request. The biggest challenge items are either those called out as not up to current code, or items towards the end of their service life. Buyers need to understand that the statement “not up to current building code” does not mean it’s necessarily problematic. Codes change all of the time and unless it’s a clear safety issue, it’s usually best to stick with actual repairs. Items at the end of their service life really depend on the item, the cost and how extensive the rest of the repair list. We’ve found that asking for everything usually ends with the seller dismissing any repairs….even the reasonable ones.
