We Buy Houses With Foundation Damage In Houston

We buy houses in Houston and we know that nothing deters buyers quite like cracks in the bricks and walls. Besides the fact that the cracks are unattractive, this could indicate severe structural damage that is very costly to repair. In many cases, buyers will cold-shoulder you until it’s fixed, or walk away completely knowing that foundation repairs aren’t always done well.

Can you sell a house with foundation problems?

Yes. However, it needs to be listed on the seller’s disclosure along with any other known defects with the house. While most people will have an inspection, knowingly hiding a foundation damage could get you in legal trouble. Make sure to fully explain any issues with the house including issues with the foundation to your buyer.

Do you need to fix the foundation before you can sell the house?

It depends on the buyer. In most cases, a traditional buyer isn’t going to be able to buy a house with severe foundation issues. The cost to repair foundation damage averages at over $4,000, and can easily be over $10,000 for major work.
