A/ As a buyer, knowledge of a property’s condition is important in making an educated decision. The purchase of a house may be one of the largest investments in your lifetime, so it is important to know if this investment fits your needs and expectations.
A/ After the inspection you will be provided a written report of the inspection results. Your report can become a great tool to renegotiate with the Seller; this is true even when your contract is an “as-is” contract. Alternatively, your contract may give the option to cancel the contract for any reason as the result of the inspection; although this may only be the case during your inspection period. There may be other details to consider and other options available to you, so we strongly recommend consulting with your real estate agent.
A/ You are NOT obligated to inspect the property you are purchasing. Although, it may be in your best interest as a buyer to prevent buying a money pit or a problem you are not prepared to deal with. The right inspection may save you thousands of dollars and dozens of headaches.
