As a buyer, should you ask for a reduction in the price, or have the seller fix the deficiencies after a home inspection? Every situation varies, but it is usually advised that buyers ask for a reduction in the price. This ensures that quality repairs are done when you move in, instead of the seller doing a low quality, or quick fix. Price is often the driving factor for sellers when doing replacement or repair work so the craftsmanship or quality may suffer. If you are able to lower the buying price, you can put that money saved towards repairs and improvements that you know will last.
