currently your basement smells of pine sol?
later once the home is sold the pine odor will fade. a stink at that
point can cost you BIG BUCKS.
whereas YOU would likely decide to seal the flooor properly to be rid
oif the odor once and for all the new oweners will spare no expense
getting rid of stink:(
Hey hon why not just rip the entire floor up and replace it? that way
it will never be a problem again... costly? who cares it the old owners
cost not ours!
stuff like this happens daily in the US. buyers want a perfect home,
just wait till your worked over by a idiot home inspector...
good luck its not my frief or money I am just warning you, cutting
costs sounds woonderful till it comes back and bites you $$$:(
its not the problems of today that you must disclose, its the issues
oof the past that might return.......
a old nneighbor sold and didnt disclose bad sewer line, terracota pipe
every one in neighborhood has troubles. new owner had troubles. sued
original owner and got 8 grand plus all court costs and legal fees,
about 10 grand, which hap[ppened to be over 10% of homes value, it was
sold as fixer upper for 90 grand.
pittsburgh has some of the lowest home prices in the country thanks to
population loss, I sold a basically identical home just doors away for
113,000 grand all nicely remodeled.
its a nice neighborhood growing in value convenient to everything
