Home Sellers – Foundation Problems?

So you are thinking about selling your home in the near future or you actually have your home up on the market now, and you think you have problems with the foundation of your home.

You, as the homeowner, need to know what the signs of foundation problems are.

Wall Crack

Sloping Floor

Floor Crack

Here is a list of foundation problem signs to look for:

Wall Cracks
Cracks in the flooring
Cracks in the ceiling
Doors and windows that will not open and close correctly
Sloping floors
Cracks in the exterior stucco and exterior bricks
Poor drainage and ponding water
Check for any obvious signs of drywall repair in the walls and also check the ceiling for repairs
Another question the homeowner usually has is, should I repair the home now or wait for the sale to take place?

And the answer is most definitely to make the necessary foundation repairs before you put the home up for sale. The main reason is that most home buyers will avoid a home that has obvious foundation problems. Another reason to repair the foundation of the home before putting the home up for sale is that there will be a home inspection by a professional inspector while the home is under contract. You risk the chance that the buyer will walk away from a home and cancel the contract if there is a problem with the foundation of the home and it is found during the inspection phase.

The cost of repair simply depends on the severity of the foundation problems and also depends on access to the foundation of the home.
Each foundation repair is usually a custom repair plan designed for that one home.
When it comes to foundation repair one size does not fit all.
There are many foundation repair options available and there are many different combinations of foundation repair options.
