We learned the hard way some of the cons of waterfront property. We built our dream home on a river in Charleston SC. We moved in and put a lot of our stuff in the open air basement of a elevated home until we were ready to move it upstairs. We quickly found out that all metal items rusted and all fabric developed mold and was ruined, and wood warped and rotted. Our builder used drywall in the basement as well which got well and began to break apart and mold as well. So now our only option is to close off the basement to be able to use it for storage. Paint and stains didnt hold up well either and you can expect to do a lot of repainting and staining as it will wear out quicker with the moisture. ... more

There really isn't anything you as the home buyer "can" do. Speak with your agent about what you "want" to do, given the timeline necessary to deliver clear title.

Waf, If you are looking at homes in the spring you will find that they sell very well if they are well cared for and in good shape. The winter tends to have homes on the market that are picked over. ... more

There are many opportunities for rental homes in that price range. Some might need some repairs but could be worth it.

I agree with everyone else. Neighbors are your best source of information. Other than that, I would suggest Googling the address.

If you are working with an agent, please be sure to follow their advice over mine, as they are your local professional. Sometimes parties to a deal can start to make it so legalistic that they scare each other away. If you trust your inspector(s) and their report(s), then rely on that information to decide if there are any problems that would cause you to walk away. It sounds like there has not been, as you may be interested in taking the seller's counter offer to cover 1/2 of the repairs. In my state we don't use "release of liability", but we put it in terms of having satisfied the inspection contingency. They may want release of the "liability" of any repairs now & after closing. For the question of "is it common" you need a local professional. I can help you locate a local agent if you don't already have one. Does the seller have an agent if you don't? If so, ask that agent what they mean by the "release of liability". ... more
