I am selling a house in Riverside, CA. The home was a 2/2 and now is a 3/2, we added a bedroom in the second dining room. No square footage added. Escrow fell through because of no permits on the added wall for the new bedroom. Should I try to get a permit or you think it’s a fluke? Everything was done to code and is beautiful. If there is no way around it I want to get the ball rolling on a permit ASAP. If not a big deal I’d like to re-list and move forward. Big brains of BP help a fairly new lady out! Thanks!
@Ashley Williams it depends on the type of property but I'd try to just re-list in this hot market, getting a permit will take time and likely require you to open the wall.
Sent you a DM. But I would say relist as quickly as you can. The buyer pulled out was probably just a fluke. Getting additional permits for that type of stuff isn't totally necessary in order to sell it for top dollar. Would love to chat with you more about this.
@Aaron K. It's a SFR. I agree with the re-list, I just didn't want to miss anything. Thanks for your perspective.
@Tyler Hungerford thanks for letting me pick your brain. I’ll look out for your DM. Riverside is coming up huh?!?
I was born and raised there. One of my favorite places in the world. I'm proud to see it doing so well.
It’s a fluke. Sell it to some one else.
