What You Don't Want To See On A Home Tour

How about another edition of WYDWTSOAHT?

As a realtor it can be difficult to what can go wrong with the structure of a home. Certain homes are constructed incorrectly or on land that has issues with the soil making it susceptible to structural problems in the future. One example of this is when a home is built on land that has a high concentration of Bentonite soil. Bentonite will expand when exposed to water. This expansion can cause cracking in the foundations of homes. A lot of times the expansion goes unnoticed, except, that is, to the trained eye. In some cases, however, the untrained eye picks up on it…. See below!

This was in the basement floor of a home I showed a few years ago. Of course it spurred on a conversation with my buyers and of course they did not buy this home. We discussed the issues soil can cause on foundations and they were educated so that their eyes became “trained eyes” Let me do the same for you.
