Got Problems?


Recommended Posts

Hold to your guns. I'd get out of the deal and see if the other buyer is still interested. They figured they got you since you accepted the original offer. I hate when people do that. Don't let them low ball you.

I plan on it.

 

Wants me to hire an electrician to replace an outlet, and add an attic light... nope, I can do that in 10 minutes for around $7 and not have to pay $75 a hour.

My dad passed away this morning. Yesterday morning he had a heart attack.  At the hospital the doc said he had congestive heart failure, fluid on lungs, low BP, low oxygen level, and kidneys failing.

Wanted to thank all for your thoughts and prayers these past weeks. My father passed peacefully early this morning. The picture is how I will choose to remember him. Sent from my SM-A102U using MyGol

Yea my grandmother passed away over the weekend from it. Have her funeral in a few days.

Nope and nope.  I agreed to a price and that's what they should get.  Those are things they can do AFTER they move in. They are just taking advantage of you at this point.

Exactly how I feel. I finished a bathroom for him, that was a crap load of work and time.

Best of luck - Sounds like the buyer is being a putz.

 

Is the buyer new to owning a house? I ask because what HG TV lovers expect in their first home buying process can be interesting. That channel one of the worst things to ever happened to my wife and wallet. 

 

My fallback when I went through "Buyer" vs "Seller" talks was - I will work with you on safety and health concerns. If you want to change anything else you're free to do so when you own it.

Put a flashlight at the opening and say there's your attic light [emoji3].

Yeah, I'm onboard with safety stuff, like i am adding a hand rail. But other than that, the other stuff is just not picky. I don't think he owns a house. A dead outlet... what harm does that do?

Dude, I wouldn't of even have done that!  Those are wish lists, not anything that has to do with the structural validity of the house.  I would of said no and have a good day, then kicked them out the door.  Your a better man than me!

What I hate about HGTV shows is that they do (pick one): remodel, paint room and trim, landscape, etc in 30 min. That leads my wife to think you (meaning me) can easily do that project in short order. The other is that many times when they show owners or hosts painting they don't do the details properly, i.e.painting around switch plate, door handles, thermostats vs undoing them and then reinstalling after the paint dries.

Yeah, in hindsight I really wish I wouldn't have. My father in law is a Michigan county building inspector... he did my inspection, I trust his word over anyone else's.

 

He called me a effing idiot for finishing the bathroom. Haha

You have every right to say No and walk away.  Remember that.  Sometimes, that's the hardest thing to see during negotiations.  They are going to ask for everything under the sun.  That's how negotiations are.  Don't let them pressure you.  Do what's best FOR YOU and your family.

Trust the “old timer”, he's been around the block a few more times and knows how people can be.

I've had to make a very focused effort to set expectations and timelines at the beginning of any project because of this very issue. I also make a checklist so why it takes X amount of time to do Y is made clear.

Yup, that sounds pretty damn petty - like buying a used car and asking the dealer to replace a missing tire valve cap.  Unless it's a code and safety issue, I'd be inclined to say no as well. We had deck railing that the home inspection wrote up for not complying with current code (vertical rail spacing).  Really Einstein?  Most of the homes in America no longer meet new codes, but did when the home was built. We did offer a little to compensate for this a couple of other minor things; but only because I had just retired and we wanted out of Pugetropolis so bad our teeth ached  :).

Played 5 holes this afternoon when the course opened up after being closed for 1.5 days for aerating.  Looks like no scores will be posted the next week or so, since we will be moving the ball in the fairway and maximum of a 2-putt on the greens.  I know it will make the course better, but ...  Grrrr!

They punched and sanded the greens here on Monday. I've never seen so much sand in my life. Was planning on playing this week, but I don't think it's even worth it. The greens looked like giant bunkers.
