Foundation Issues: What To Know During The Home Buying Process

When it comes to your home buying/selling process, you need to double-check a lot of little things before making a decision. Does the home have a yard? How big is it? Are there any damages to be aware of? The thing is, some damages may be unseen to the untrained eye, costing thousands in damages later down the road. As professionals in foundation repair, see how we at WCK Foundation Repair can help you with any foundation issues you may have.

Are You Buying A Home?

As you go through the home buying process, you’re often going through a number of things that look perfect or needs to be fixed. But those with an untrained eye may look past any outstanding foundation issues. Especially if these issues cannot be seen until the rain comes. Unless you get an inspector who knows what they’re looking for, you could be paying more for a home in distress and be saddled with the extra cost of repair. 

Selling Your Home?

Buying a new home is one thing. What if you’re the seller? When selling your home, you want to be able to show off your home in the best possible light in order to get the best offers as soon as you can. And, while you may not think it at first, foundation issues can cause you a world of hurt later—especially in your pocketbook. 

Plenty of buyers are interested in a home with foundation issues! But not for a reason you’d like to hear. When your house is going through foundation troubles, you’re often forced to sell at a much lower price than you want, simply due to the threat of foundation damages. You may want to bail and remove yourself from this situation, but it’s much easier to take the long road. Take the time to go through foundation repairs, and then you can sell your home closer to the actual price it’s worth.

With WCK Foundation Repair, you can also enjoy the additional peace of mind that comes with our transferable lifetime warranty. This means that whether you are buying or selling a home, there is nothing you need to do to transfer the warranty. The process is automatic. We keep everything on file under the location instead of the client name. This way, the current owner of the home can give us a call and alert us to any repair needs, regardless of whether they paid for the original repairs themselves. It can be a great selling point for potential buyers!

Other Things To Keep in Mind

Foundation damage may actually be a sign of more issues around the home. More often than not, these issues are usually due to the lack of proper drainage. And, with our soil type and crazy amounts of rain, this is a large threat to the health of the house. Have you been noticing dips in your yard, puddles near your home, or easy flooding with each storm? If so, your foundation is in danger, and your home needs a better drainage solution. We can help you figure out which drainage solution may be the right choice for your home.
