So my wife and i have been house hunting for a while. And we finally found a house. We thought.
We made an offer contingent on inspection and put down the earnest money. The offer was accepted.
And then the inspection... needs new roof (that we were aware of), sheathing, siding, garage, foundation, it has two types of wood eating insects, black mold, mice, earth settling issues seemingly associated to drainage and oh by the way, it has been on fire at least once. All of this stuff was not obvious and luckily we had a good inspector.
We decided that was just too much for us to take on.
