Even when you look at pictures, it is hard to tell what is actually wrong with the house, until you tour it. If it is a property owned by an owner/occupant, possibly they have filled out a property condition report. It is available for agents to download and email to buyers. If there is not property condition report, then touring is the next option. If you live out of town, find an agent that will tour it with you on the phone and take photos for you. After touring the house and your decide you still want to make an offer, once it is accepted, you can have a whole house inspection and bring any inspector or contractor you would like to see the property, at your expense. If you decide the repair is something you do not want to handle, you can get your earnest money back. You can also renegotiate the offer if it was something you were not aware of, or could not have been reasonably aware of when you wrote the offer.

As others have noted, in our area the best way to determine the condition of the home is to have a home inspection performed once you have a contract in place. In other parts of Kansas and the country Sellers will have a pre-listing inspection done. This allows the Seller to address any issues prior to listing the home and allows the Buyer access to this report. That said, with the Seller's permission, you are certainly able to bring a knowledgable friend or family member along with you to look at the home. Either way the purpose of the repair amendment is to allow Buyers to negociate the repair or replacment of defects not readily seen prior to the home inspeciton. A good Realtor is there to help both Buyers and Sellers navigate this at times cumbersome and confusing process!

This property is currently under contract. However, to answer your question better, the best way would be to view the property and if you were still interested, have an inspection done.

This property is currently pending in the MLS (this property went under contract 07/11/2012). There is not a way to get a List of problems to the home. It's always recommended that the buyer gets a Home Inspection via a Licensed home inspector to educate whats actually wrong with the property.

Thank You,
