All of these answers are correct. I specialize in Short Sales and you must understand that most short sales are similar to foreclosures in that they are almost always sold "as is". The lender generally will not make repairs or warrant the home and the Seller has no money to do any repairs. Any professional Realtor will urge you to have a thorough inspection during your Due Diligence period. If you find there are problems, then you will need to decide if they are major enough for you to walk away or if your "deal" is good enough to take the chance and make the repairs after closing. Good luck, do your homework and you will be fine.

The Seller has stated in his Seller's Disclosure Statement that there is nothing structurally wrong with this home. I would caution you to spend the $300-$400 for a professional inspection before making an offer (as this is a short sale and any recourse you have after closing will be nil). I also would caution you against buying anything site unseen. The Buyer must always beware.

Only a compete inspection would determine if there are any structural issues. Give me a call to discuss your time frame to move to Atlanta and when you plan to visit and preview property. Once you make an offer, I have several inspectors I can recommend.

I looked at the Seller's disclosure and they have answered "no" to any structural issues. The house looks very nice inside as well and it's in a good location. If you are interested in pursuing it then you should make an offer and then have a thorough property inspection. Is there a reason you are asking about structural issues?

The only way for you to determine that is to hire a professional inspector. If you need me to recommend a few, I'd be happy to provide some names and let you know anything I can find out for you. Let me know how I can help.
