Mainly close proximity, which is pretty much the whole city. Has someting to do with a little event called the Great Chicago Fire. For many years, they didn’t even let you build a wooden frame house.
As to my original post, I did call out that the buyers should have the builder have the window manufacturer’s field engineer come out and verify that the windows were installed properly and certify, in writing, as such. This will involve the building opening some drywall.
The agents are not pleased with me because of this and they are pressuring the buyers. But I see it as a possible “hidden defect” based upon the improper insulation seen in the garage. Builder is threatening to sue of the deal falls through. My response to him is the determining factor as to if the deal falls through is whether or not he had the smarts to have the windows properly installed.
In any case, I am getting many people pushing back at me telling me I am being too picky or being a deal killer. I see it as merely protecting my client, based upon seen problems, and reasonably doubting that house’s windows were done right.
That is the pint that I wanted to get addressed and discussed here.
