i found the perfect house for me. It has twice the property and twice the size of what i thought i could afford( I'm catching a real steal). My offer has been accepted, closing date set. The problem is we just did the home inspection and found some issues. 1) No water, we turned on the water used it up in about 4 minutes and no more would come out. obviously its a well, so either the pump is dead or well is dry ? (inspector thinks the pump is dead) 2) Septic tank is missing a baffle that prevents solid waste from going into the leeching fields. If this is not repaired leeching fields will get clogged and there will be a big mess. 3) Broken window. Other than those 3 things place looks pretty good. Now my real estate agent was saying I'd pay for the repairs and then be credited at closing. I don't like the idea of putting significant amount of money into repairing a house that isn't mine yet. Then theirs the option that i get quotes get my credit at closing and then fix the problems ... but what if they end up being more sever then I'm eating the difference. What would you do ?
