All home buyers should have a home inspection done.
When a buyer receives the report from the property inspector (who is a completely neutral party) the response can go in several directions.
First of all an inspection report is only an assessment a property’s condition at one specific point in time. The buyer's response to the report can go in several directions
- request repairs be made,
- reduction in the contract price,
- a combination of the first two, or
- just cancel the contract. The contract should always have an inspection contingency - even "as is" offers.
If a minor repair will close the deal, why not? Of course this is a repair request - not a renegotiation of the contract.
