Foreclosures and Short Sales
Oftentimes, buyers are under the impression that “as-is” homes and properties cannot be inspected prior to purchase. Others believe a home inspection is not justified because the property is such a “great deal.” However, because of vacancy and neglect, foreclosed and short sale homes often have more defects than the average home. Although a buyer may deliberately be searching for a “fixer-upper,” he or she cannot make an informed decision without a thorough pre-purchase inspection.
In this whitepaper, Inspect-It 1st illustrates the absolute necessity of pre-purchase property inspections on foreclosures and short sales.
