Best of Luck,
"AS IS" is a simple declaration that the seller is not interested in making any repairs to the property. Whether or not they WILL make an exception would likely depend on the person, the repair, and cost associated with the repair.
But going into one of these situation buyers should not plan on any repairs being done by the seller.
But again, evaluate with the assumption that it really is "as is" since that is the assumption the seller is making and the basis on which they are pricing the property. Consider "as is" condition in the price you offer. If you come to terms on price, and then hit them with a moutain of request, it will likely not go very well.
Good luck and best,
Unwavering Commitment to Service, Unsurpassed Results
When it states 'As Is', this means the seller is letting you know up front they will not do any repairs. However, you can always ask them to do repairs - especially if they are safety issues. Don't expect them to do them though - especially if they're NOT safety issues. Make sure you have home inspection contingencies in effect so if they refuse to do repairs, you can cancel contract (if you want to) without any repercussions.
