The first home we looked at is adorable. I love it! But there’s a problem. And my local Sambucan architect friend tells me it can’t be fixed.
I would absolutely take Giuseppe’s advice on this one. I lived in Florida for a long time and know quite well what moisture can do and how hard it can be to fix.
Always, always go with the advice of someone that is familiar with the situation. It may not be what we want to hear, but probably what we need to hear.
I would NOT buy this house. Not ever, not even if I was given it free. I don’t think the damp and mold will ever go, and I suspect a host of other problems will surface later.
Absolutely take Giuseppe's advice! And that was my grandfather's name, so double take his advice...
Trust Giuseppe. He knows.
If u need a little co-investor, I am ready to talk about it. In Italy, 17 is the unlocky number. If u r curious, I can explain the reason why
Moldy boots be bad for scootin'.
It’s fun going house-hunting with you (virtually)! Good thing Giuseppe was there 🔨
You are a romantic, which tends to gloss over drawbacks. Moisture problems like that are a terrible deal breaker. Find a balcony, beautiful tile and a location in a better structure.
Definitely take Giuseppe's advice. I have a friend in Penne, Abruzzo who has damage from the neighboring house. She has a long legal problem to deal with it. And the owners are not a dozen distant heirs. You will find something else.
Everyone has already said it but I would take the advice of a resident. I see the draw, though! Such potential.
