What things did you negotiate after inspection?

What did you ask for, and what did you get?

Re: What things did you negotiate after inspection?

we only had minor issues, nothing we didn't already know about. So we had the patio furniture and BBQ thrown in...

But if there's something major, I would definitely negotiate for $$ off.

We demanded a new septic tank or money deducted (we got the new tank) and they tried to fix up most of the minor things.

Good luck!!!!

I tried to negotiate but the sellers wouldn't. It wasn't anything major.

I think ours took at least two hours.

We had a problem with the electrical. We had 100 amps and the engineer said that we really needed to upgrade to 200 amps. He estimated the cost at about $2k. We tried to get the sellers to come down that much. They refused and we decided to buy the house anyway. They had already accepted our offer, which was $15k below asking, and they could have taken another offer for $5k above asking, but chose to honor ours.

That is almost the exact same thing that happened with us.

We tried to negotiate b/c there had been termite damage, and their electrical is not up to code. They gave us nothing and we bought the house anyway.
