BUYING “AS IS” WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR BUYERS?

Buying a home ‘As Is’ can be a great way to save money! If you’re okay with doing a few fixes or renovations, buying a home “As Is” can be cheaper than buying one that’s in perfect condition!


Often, the home is in very decent condition and current owners simply don’t know the state of the property which is why they’re listing it “As Is”. 

Simply because I house is listed “As Is” does not mean there is anything wrong w/ the property.  More than likely any repairs that may be required are minimal and the Seller has already incorporated that into the listing price. Or, for convenience sake, the Seller simply doesn’t want to negotiate repairs for the purpose of a cleaner contract.  

Particularly in today’s market, with it being a Seller’s Market, we’re seeing more and more “As Is” sales because it speeds up the negotiating process to place the property under contract which will not produce a cancellation of the offer due to repair issues. 

Long story short, don’t let an “As Is” sale cause you to walk away from a perfectly, affordable home.
