As often is, my question is probably one that others know first hand more than I do. Mostly we have rented but now we have an accepted offer on a nice little home. We had the home inspector out and he mostly found little stuff that my hubby can easily fix but there WAS a possible future problem with the wiring in the attic so we asked the seller to fix it. He is bringing in an elevatrician to see how much it will cost .Our guess is broad....$500 to $5000. It is unlikely to be either at the low or high end. If seller digs his feet in and says no, should we offer to pay half? Is that appropriate? Ask to have something off the house? Or do most buyers just pay it. This will be listed as a defect on the house if he does not fix it and we thentdint buy it because it potentially could start a fire. On the other hand, I have come to love this cozy home with a pellet stove, deck and fenced yard... On a quiet block with only one neighbor next to us (and we met him....he is nice with four dogs!). We are trying to be frugal but we know a house is an investment. Thoughts?
