Have you ever had a friend lose a home because the home inspection didn’t come back perfect and they did up the repair addendum and the sellers rejected it? Part of the problem I find is there are two types buyers: those who are realistic about repairs and those who want absolutely everything done that the inspector found wrong with the home.
Here is the problem with the second type of buyer. Unless it is new construction you are getting a used home, there are going to be things that need to be repaired. If they are minor things like cracked light switches, though something found on an inspection, it really doesn’t affect the real salability of the house.
My suggestion is, when putting together a repair addendum, is make a cover sheet of all the repairs itemized on one piece of paper without explanation, and a second piece of paper stating though there were numerous repairs listed by the inspector, we understand we aren’t getting a new home, but these are things that are important to us that we would like repaired prior to closing.
In my experience, when a seller gets these three things they see the buyer isn’t asking for the moon and will more than likely do the repairs. There are exceptions, like those that insist their home is being sold as-is and there is no changing their minds. So, unless you are willing to walk over those repairs not being done, then you may have to just deal with repairs after you get your new home.
