I inspected a home in July this year and just did the inspection for the same house.
I remember it well. The seller called bellyaching and threatening to sue.
The buyer walked in July.
This time around the fixed about 6 items properly that I noted, like a GFCI, rusted exterior shut off at the A/C and a few other minor items.
Now there was an issue with the vinyl siding and all that was done was one damaged section was replaced. (With the wrong color and using gutter screws to hold in place) The same areas of buckled, loose siding was still present. I told my recent client to have a qualified siding specialist repair and not Joe homeowner or Uncle Wally.
Next was the deck steps. The repair to this was a joke!!
The steps are still sitting on cut stringers.
The furnace flue pipe was painted. In July it was stained and rusted. The same dirty filter was in place so I advised professional service or proof of documentation. The painted flue pipe in the photo looks good but it was already starting to rust and I am sure it was never serviced.
There was also a stain on the counter and there fix was to cover with a plant.
I am posting the before and after pics for your enjoyment.
The house was priced 20K less this time around.
I wonder if Joe homeowner will be calling bellyaching again.
