Buyer wants 10k for 1k worth of repairs
We have a contract on our house and closing date set.
The radon levels in the water came back slightly elevated. We agreed to either install or credit them the cost of a carbon water mitigation system.
They came back asked for a $10k credit. Yes, ten thousand dollars. The cost of the system ranges from 1000-1300. We got two quotes from basement system companies.
The buyer is refusing to give us a written itemization of how they came up with the 10,000.
He's basically trying to just renegotiate the cost of the house. I'm frankly appalled his buyers agent would event submit such a crazy request without proper documentation.
We don't have the results of the radon air test back yet. If that comes back high, we would again concede the cost or install a system.
So, our deal is off. And we are moving across the country in exactly one month. I'm beyond devastated and stressed.
I guess I just need a group hug.
