Buyer Beware?! What About Seller Beware? How Sellers and/or their Licensees ask for Trouble~#2
Beware of the Architect's Folly ~ Decorative Wood Trim
Hanging planter boxes, unnecessary balconies, cantilevering beams, attached trellises, etc, all have one thing in common ~ they rot.
Year after year, sale after sale, dry-rot and/or termite damage goes unchecked or worse, ignored.
This expensive "gotcha" often plays out in the middle of a sale, through the efforts of the buyer's inspectors.
Now the sale is in jeopardy, some buyers will walk, even if the seller will pay for the repairs.
Never give a buyer a reason to be nervous, they can do that on their own.
