Helping Stone Home Sellers Save 10G’s
Ontario Stone Homes Are Amazing
Stone homes are such interesting and lovely spaces. But over the decades, over the centuries these homes have evolved. As much as we love to find original details, having viewed hundreds of stone homes we have never found one that was totally in its original state. Clearly as needs change as families change these houses evolve over time. Oftentimes that’s what gives them the most character. Sometimes those Evolutions can cause concern.

It’s important to remember that most Stone Home buyers really don’t know what they’re looking at. Most have never actually been in a stone home.

Helping Stone Home Buyers Understand
It’s easy to understand the apprehension and uneducated Stone home buyer may feel when they look at structures they just don’t understand. It’s also easy to understand a home inspector being careful to err on the side of caution when inspecting a structure they don’t really have a good grasp of. however, both of those situations can result in the stone home seller feeling penalized because people don’t understand his real estate.
We call this the $10,000 solution. When a stone home buyer or stone home inspector finds something they don’t understand it seems to automatically become a $10,000 problem. A little moisture in the basement ( and there’s always moisture in the basement in stone homes). But just a little moisture can turn into a major $10,000 foundation issue. Because these stone homes were built before electricity even existed, wiring is always a concern. The observation of something that looks a little bit out of the norm can automatically become a $10,000 wiring issue. As soon as an inspector says something like that the stone home buyer becomes very nervous. In the end, Our mission is to put you the stone homeowner in the strongest position possible so when buyers or their inspectors find things they don’t understand we can help them.
