You have been waiting for this day for months – you finally are ready to take the step and move to a new Toronto home. Whether you’re upsizing or downsizing, or perhaps just moving due to your occupation, you want to make it official. Before you call your realtor, however, it’s important to get all those “to do” items finished… including basement crack repair.
Why Basement Cracks Could Cost You Big time in Real Estate Negotiations
Even if you have the “perfect” number in mind in terms of what you want to make when you sell your home, you may be surprised to learn that you aren’t going to get what your neighbors got when they sold their properties. Even if your house looks the same as theirs on the outside, and the acreage is similar, your basement issue could significantly lower the perceived value of your residence.
For instance, take two Toronto homes that are about 1500 square feet and sit on about a quarter acre of real estate. All other things aside, they’re comparable… except that one has a wet, leaky basement due to cracks in the foundation. A potential buyer who sees both properties will immediately feel that the one with the damp basement is worth less than the one with the dry basement. Consequently, any bids he or she makes will be lower for that property.
Paying for Basement Crack Repair Is Cheaper Than Losing Dollars in a Real Estate Deal
