So, we had an offer on our existing house and were ready to move forward with the new house... that is until the inspection report came back on our current house. We have foundation issues that we had no idea about. It's quite frustrating and shocking to us. We never had water issues and never even noticed the cracks. But after everything has been pointed out to us, we can see that even the wall is moving... not good at all. So, the buyer terminated the agreement and we have quotes to fix the problem. It's VERY costly and will cause us to remove our deck and an an entire wall of drywall from our finished basement so they can excavate and pour a new cement wall behind the current block the entire way across the back of our house and secure the current wall. Not sure what we're gonna do... we have to fix it but then we'll be re-listing our house as the holidays get closer, which is a crazy time to begin with. We may just pull the house and re-list in the spring. We are vey sad :(.
