Don't let a home being sold "As Is" Frighten you

Main Idaho Real Estate Insights

A home listed in ‘as-is’ condition doesn’t necessarily mean there is something wrong with a home. Most bank-owned properties are listed for sale ‘as is,’ but you also may find an individual seller lists a property this way because they can’t afford or don’t want to make repairs to the property. They just want to sell it.

Don't rule out ‘as-is’ condition properties too quickly. The first step is to ask your agent to provide you the Property Disclosure. This may give you what you need to know to decide to move forward. If there are needed repairs that you can afford knowing that going in, it may be worth taking a look?

It also is not the time to skip the home inspection! You can still make an offer contingent upon an inspection. Sometimes the situation is obvious and the seller is not willing to do that but it is worh asking. That’s good advice when buying any type of home.

Also know that you can still negotiate on price with a property being sold ‘as-is’. Just because a seller isn’t willing to make any repairs, doesn’t necessarily mean they won’t lower the selling price to compensate for what you discover during the inspection process.

2019 looks like a year for Boise Idaho Real Estate to regain some balance compared to the explosive appreciation we have seen the past 3 years. If you have questions about buying or selling property here in Southern Idaho, just ask!
