We are living in the generation where many homes in Foster City have passed the 30 year mark. Much has changed in the way homes are built from when Jack Foster first conceived his plans to build the community of his dreams.
Technology has greatly improved since the 1960′s compared to how foundations are structured today. Home inspectors that find cracks in the foundation will tell you that they occur over time and that a formal foundation inspection can determine if an epoxy patch will save the day and your transaction or if more aggressive treatment is needed to ensure the structural integrity of the home for the next 30 years.
When in doubt, it’s best to investigate before you place your Foster City home on the housing market to know what you are selling and to understand the true condition of your home. This will also help you the seller make complete disclosure on your property condition. Start with a property inspection, and if the inspector thinks your foundation needs an engineer to take a look at it, you can discuss with your Foster City agent the best course of action.
