However, once an inspection shows a fault, a contractor estimate can help you negotiate the sellers into paying part or all of a major repair.

I could speculate and imagine a scenario where it might make sense for the seller to pay for inspections, but the bottom line is that it is depending on the motivation of the buyer and seller. If the seller is â€œextremelyâ€ motivated to get their property sold, and if the pool of buyers are small and if it seems like a reasonable compromise from the sellerâ€™s unique perspective to pay for inspections; then, guess what? The seller might be motivated to agree to pay for inspections. As one of my colleges has pointed out, we are not talking about that much money. In the big picture it might make sense from the sellerâ€™s point of view to cover that relatively small expense in order to facilitate the â€œwho knows how many 100â€™s of thousands of dollarsâ€ of real estate sale of their home.
So, FINAL ANSWER; it depends on the situation and what terms the buyers and sellers have agreed to.

James, I liked your answer because it was funny, but there are times when a savvy seller will get and pay for an inspection as a preemptive measure. I've done it myself and it worked to my advantage in a big way...but enough said...I can't give away all my secrets & strategies!
I recommend ALWAYS getting an inspection, it can save you thousands of dollars. For more information on the buying process including the importance of an inspection, check out my website at: http://www.mylasvegasrealestateaccess.com/Whyaninspection.
