Apartment building sale

When a buyer uses a FHA loan, inspections are done and more requirements are needed to fulfill before a home can be purchased. When the inspection report came this morning unfortunately one of the things needing correction is the exterior peeling paint, primarily our trim!! And some interior painting on two of the porches!!

One way to get around making corrections as a seller is for the buyer to cover and correct deficiencies using an escrow account. We did this when we purchased the apartment building to begin with, which is interesting or the seller can just make corrections or fund the escrow account for buyer. So that’s where we’re at, deciding what to do!!

So this really is just a bump in the road we didn’t expect, the problem is we have a limited time to correct this and a lot of things to complete in less than three weeks not to mention we have a three-story Victorian!! So it’s a not an easy  job due to the height of our building!

Just think of our story like watching a show and the dramatic music starts to play!! Hahaha.. So stay tuned to find out what we decide… to correct  inspection report!

Thanks for visiting, following, sharing and liking my posts! Have a wonderful evening!!





Im a mother, blogger and have come to enjoy the wonderful outdoors living in Maine for over 20 yrs!! Its been a whirlwind of change and never ending projects at our homes that helped me see the need to be physically active and work towards healthy eating, and a balanced mind!! My passion in life is inspiring others to make good changes, besides getting out and exercising what has helped me is the bible and its message of hope :) My Blog is all about the many projects in life we have, the good eats-food (vegetarian, and vegan included) that im cooking up in the kitchen, and the gorgeous nature inspiration: all of which helps me feel happy!! I love sharing with you!! follow along & be inspired!!
