I am buying VA. Should I pay for the appraisel, and what about the inspection, should I pay for that.?
if you like to get inspections it is a great idea. In case there is any damage to the house you will know before you end up buying.

If my asking price is higher than the appraised price am I required to lower the price or can I hold out for the higher price?
It all depends on the purchase contract. If there are any wording that describes your question in the purchase contract then the price should reflect that.

Offered above asking, now stressed about appraisal.
If you had removed appraisal contingency and appraisal comes in low then that is a concern. Otherwise I wouldn't worry .

Product not working. Email preferences very off.

A close friend of our family's (non-resident alien in the US) is offering to transfer the deed of his rental in WA state to me as a quick claim deed.
For your own safety and protection I recommend you hire a Real Estate Attorney as well as an accountant for the tax issues. Realtors are not experts in either fields.
