I am reconsidering the purchase of home that I had inspected a few weeks ago.

There was a "structure issue" where a couple beams were considered too stressed.

I need a second and third opinion on the report I've attached; can someone explain this to me? Ss this something I need to worry about?

Would this decrease the value of the home even if the sellers were to follow the fix?


Thanks.

It's an engineering report, and it recommends a specific remedy to correct a deficiency (It is spelled out in the Summary). Any structural defect should be addressed.

If you want a 2nd opinion, you'll need to hire an engineer for an on-site analysis.

As to future property value, that's not provided by inspectors, so you should consult with an appraiser or a local real estate agent.
