“A Requirement NO, but Good Common Sense to have”

 

 

 

I think the place is in good working order for now and needs some attention but nothing that is immediate. 

Does a conventional loan mean a person has to have well, septic, and home inspections?

Thanks, Ruth

 

I always get concerned when someone asks me if home inspections are necessary. These questions are being asked because the property is a short sale and being sold in “AS IS Condition”. I am always going to recommend that inspections are done. Sure it may be a “good buy” however, will it be such a good buy if a septic system or well needs to be replaced? How about a roof or furnace?

 

Spending the money for inspections is a good investment. I always tell my clients there are normally reasons that someone is recommending against doing inspections.
