Are you getting a proper home inspection on a house that is as is cash before going into contract just to know where everything stands?
@Sam Bromano It's a good idea to do it. You aren't concerned really with the small stuff, but if there is something that's real, real bad, you need to know now while you can still back out or rework the price.
Once under contract I sometimes will get an inspector to go in and give me a verbal breakdown without a report to save money. I don't need a report, just need to know general state of the property. If it's a complete gut, I don't bother.
