Foundation Repairs and Selling Your Home
Putting a house on the market and getting ready to move can always be a challenge. It can become overwhelming if it is discovered that your home has a foundation problem. While the thought of fixing a foundation in order to be able to sell your home may sound daunting, it doesn’t have to be difficult at all. You just need the help of a professional.
First of all, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to sell a home with an active foundation problem, unless it is to a cash buyer. If a mortgage company is involved, it almost a certainty that they would require the foundation to be fixed as a condition of the loan. Whether the repairs needed involving installing piers or pilings or a Surface Drain or a French Drain, they would typically need to be done before closing.
This is where Structured Foundation Repairs comes in. We have successfully repaired over 21,000 homes in the DFW area. The vast majority of those were in a real estate transaction. We either inspected the home at the request of the selling side or the buying side. In either case, we perform a free, comprehensive evaluation of the foundation and the site drainage. We’ll let you know if repairs are needed or not. If repairs are needed, we will put together a repair plan that includes the repairs, engineering reports before and after as needed for local permits and lender requirements, etc., and a plumbing test. The entire process is designed to get you to the closing table with as minimal fuss as possible.
So, if you’re in the process of buying or selling a home and you think there might be some issues with the foundation or the site drainage. Call Structured Foundation Repairs today for a free evaluation.
