Loved the plantation shutters.negotiating with the best offer, went under contract on December 8th. Having to negotiate for four days with the first Buyers should have been a clue of trouble around the bend. Nonetheless, the Sellers were ecstatic, as well they should have been.  They had had a pre-list home inspection and done the items on the inspection list recommended by the inspector.  The house was in tip top shape, but the Buyer’s home inspector took issue with the enclosed porch.  He stated it wasn’t built to code. Well, the building permits told a different story.
