I forgot how frustrating it is to look for a house. everything looks so lovely online! Sellers aren’t really keen to show off their sinking foundations and cracked masonry.
Note to self: if a house is priced $70,000 less than you think it would be, there’s a reason. For every $10,000 less than expected the problems increase exponentially. The busted and ripped off garage door will be the least of your worries. Your real issue isn’t that half the floor is torn up, but that it is torn up in a straight line across the house and you don’t know what manner of monster did such a thing.
