I toured a property which got me interested and saw a couple of cracks on support column and beam. Is it a red flag or something not to worry about?
The basement is freshly painted so the cracks are not as easy to notice. But – that is kinda what I look for when I visit properties….cracks on walls.
To be clear, I wouldn’t buy any property with out home inspection these days although the last offer I made got rejected because of it despite offering higher price. I think the market could encourage owners who want to unload a property with issues.
The cracks are in the area I circled in red in the linked image.
