Deferred maintenance issues.

Desert Sun Home Inspections Carlsbad New Mexico.

There are times when I get to see  home in all it's glory. Then there are times when

I see homes that are in need of  lot of maintenance. This was such a home yesterday.

This manufactured home has a wood exterior and was in real need of exterior maintenance.

I was told by the buyer that the seller was going to re stain the exterior of the home. I told home there was a lot more that needed to get done than just a re staining of the home.

Take a look at this exterior of this home. If this was my home I would have done the repairs and re staining before the home went into a listing for sale. But that's just the way I am.

Faded exterior of home.

This is the way the entire home looked. Except of course the garage. It was fine. With the exception of the skirt.

Cracked and damaged exterior boards were an issue.

Take a look at a small sample of what was found.

Seperated facia.

This fascia board didn't want to stay in place. Now the large gap needs to be repaired.

On this shot you can see the marriage line close up on the exterior that has fallen apart. Time to replace damaged and missing trim.

Damaged and broken trim.

This piece meal trim job has a lot to be desired. This home has a lot of exterior work to get done for the buyer and seller to get to closing.

 

This is why you always get a "FULL Home Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.

Of course that siding is too close to the concrete.  Not good, in terms of moisture, and a via for termites.

Hi Clint.  That home won't qualify for FHA financing.

Hi Grant,

The seller can offer the home how ever they choose. But to make the home look better is selling 101.

Thanks for the comment and have a good day.

Hi Lenn,

The buyer has already told me the seller is going to re finish the exterior of the home.

Have a nice day in Loudoun county.

Hello Mr. Bond.

I was told to re do the exterior would be around $2,000 if only repaired and stained.

Have a nice day in Ohio.

Hello Kat,

Maybe so, but the buyer still wants the exterior repairs taken care of before closing on the home.

Have a great day in Monroe.

Hi Rob,

I would say about half of home owners let the regular maintenance wait till there is an issue.

Have a good day in Bristol.

Hello Michael.

I don't do any repairs to homes I have inspected at all.

No conflict of interest here.

Have a nice day in Brentwood.

Hi Anita,

The exterior and some interior work will be completed by the sellers. They should have known the buyers would have wanted this done.

Have a nice day in Warner Robins.

Hi Ginny,

There is a ton of work to do. I wonder if the seller thought the buyers would buy in this condition?

Have a good day in North Kingstown.

Hi Jay,

The base or skirt on the home is actually treated logs. But there is a ton of issues with this home. No venting for the crawl space is just one thing.

Have a good day in Bristow.

Hi Conrad,

I don't get into the financing end of things. But  bet there are a lot of lenders that would not want to finance this home.

Have a great day in Webster.

Hi Wayne,

I have no clue to what they were thinking. They should have been advised by their listing agent to repair the home.

Have a nice day in the Seattle areas.

Well, at least it has a very good, and adequate, attic vent up there!

At least ...

That was a joke Clint.  Although holes do make for vents!

By the way, they included a drip edge!  Impressive!

Hi Jay,
