Whether you’re a seasoned home-owner or a first time home-buyer, the task of looking for the perfect home can be stressful anywhere in the country. But when you add to that our expansive Texas clay soil, that makes the task of buying a home a little unique.
While most seasoned buyers know that purchasing a home with foundation repair problems is normal, this can be a scary thing to hear for the first time home buyer. You just found your dream home, but it needs foundation repair. Both Pier & Beam and Slab-On-Grade foundations can have foundation issues and may need adjustments.
This is very normal for the Austin real estate market. Most homes shift throughout the year depending upon ground moisture and whether or not we’re in a drought or a rainy season. If you feel there could be some issues, it’s always a good idea to have a foundation repair expert come take a look and give you the real story on what’s going on with your potential home. Sometimes the damage is very noticeable and the home will most certainly need extensive repair. When this happens, it’s a good idea to have the foundation assessed and that way you can determine if you need to adjust your offer to allow for repairs.
