I’ve been on vacation, so it’s been about a week since I posted…sorry about that!
The Leak House went under contract last week, and the buyers had their inspection over the weekend. As we hoped, the inspector didn’t find anything major, and the buyers only asked for several minor issues to be repaired. This includes some damaged weather-stripping on one of the exterior doors, a broken doorbell, a dirty air filter, a broken smoke alarm, a missing cap on the fireplace gas burner, and one or two other very minor issues.
The only potentially costly issue is that the water pressure in the house is too high; generally, this will either be a quick fix of dialing down the pressure or, if that doesn’t work, would indicate that we need a new pressure reducing valve (PRV). If we need a new PRV, it would likely run several hundred dollars. We actually had this exact same issue on the house right around the corner.
Anyway, the repairs will be completed in the next couple days, we’re hoping to have the appraisal in the next week or so, and once we clear that hurdle, we’re hopefully on to closing by the end of the month…
