saggy floor/roof

annie_firsthomeOctober 18, 2008

Hello, I have made an offer on a house that has a saggy floor in the kitchen and it appears the roof is sagging in the same area. The exterior of the home is brick and doesn't appear to have structural problems/ cracks...it was built in 1958. I am worried now that this will be a big problem to fix, but not a "neccesary" repair as listed is my purchase agreement. I have not hired an inspector yet. Does anyone have any suggestions on what could be the cause and if it sounds like a big fix? Thanks for any insight.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Hire the inspector... you do really want to proceed on guesses from people here who've never seen the house and are not qualified?
