Law vary by state so it is best to get a local experienced, skilled agent to help you. Otherwise, the For Sale By Owner may take advantage of you.
Have an amazing day!
You can hire an attorney, pay them your hard earned money to purchase the house.
In the city of Detroit a city inspection is required. You can either have the owner do the repairs cited by the inspection and have it re-inspected. Or you will be required to sign a ACR which will require you to do the repairs in a 6 month period and have it re-inspected.
I purchase properties in the city for myself and for investors we try to keep it straight. There are many out there who will try to take advantage of you just be smart.
I have lived in the city for twenty five years, and if i can help you in anyway please contact me.
