No. It is not required but it is highly advisable. You may want your buying contract to include language that allows you to back out of the deal should there be problems with the property that are discovered during the inspection period.

On the flip side, for the house that I just purchased I chose to not have the home inspected. I used this as a bargaining chip and, as a result, got the house for an AMAZING price. The only reason I opted to not have an inspection was because I was planning on gutting the house and installing a new roof, updating the plumbing, updating the electric, and HVAV system - these are the big things that a home inspection examines. As these were being replaced anyway I found no need to inspect their existing condition.

Anything is possible. From just a rental, to a purchase option. Discuss with your Realtor or directly with the seller.

Michael Blum answered:
I agree with my colleagues. Just remember that anything NOT in your reply is not part of the contract. So, if you are hoping to have something, make sure it gets into this response properly (and in a timely fashion - time is of the essence here).

Best of luck
- Mike

Absolutely paint your hall bathroom before you sell. The more neutral, the better. A new shower curtain and bathroom towels help as well!

I couldn't agree more with some of the suggestions that have already been given. Driving around the neighborhood and asking neighbors face to face is always a great idea bc then you will be able to use your gut instead of just reading something online. That community in particular is a wonderful area.
Good luck with everything and by all means if you have any further questions give me a call or email.

Edith Karoline Jasser answered:
Well this is a loaded question and with not knowing the price, size and age and upgrades of your current home, and whether you want to buy bigger or smaller it is hard to tell. The outstanding loan amount on your current home will indicate whether you current home will sell with leaving you with equity....or not.....

Home values in most parts of the country have gone down, how long have you been in this home, how much
do you still owe the lender?

And then where to, another state, are prices there higher or lower, do you want to up or down grade, buy a larger or smaller home. Once we would know some of the above we could give you some better advice.

Work with a local Realtor who can find out the current value, and discuss your options with you.

Working always in the very BEST interest of her clients, buyers, sellers and investors alike!

This economy has been a wake up call for many, and I think what is important is that you make a decision based on solid financial figures. The days of speculating are over. If you have the resources to feel comfortable with a larger mortgage, or have the extra $100K sitting in the bank to throw into the kitty, why not? But I think most people are thinking that living frugally has a lot of benefits for good sleep at night. ... more

It's more like second option and if buyer wants to end contract because of refusal of repair or credit, than they lose deposit.

Hello Sassylady!

My wife and I are in the market for a new and bigger Townhome. We pass by Gwynedale Townhomes everyday on our way to work as we live in Towamencin. We have seen the Dover model in Gwynedale and in Montgomery Greene ( North Wales) as they are both David Cutler properties. We love it, unfortunately two have sold on Kipling Ct. just recently as we would have liked to purchase but we were too late on bidding as they sold. This would be a lovely move for us as we would be able to keep our children in Gwynedd Square Elementary. Please feel free to e-mail if you are seriously putting it on the market, we may can strike a deal without you having to market it. We are very serious, your realtor can contact mine or if you want to discuss anything feel free to e-mail me at ( By the way, our condo is for sale in the MLS listing now, maybe you would like is in a very good neighborhood ( Chatham Village Condos-Towamencin)

Townhomes in Center Point Farms have no doubt declined in value from the past couple of years. Currently, they are listing and selling from the high $300,000's to mid $400,000 depending on location and condition. Even though the mailing address is "Lansdale", these townhomes are located in Worcester Township and Methacton School District and are still extremely desirable with much demand to live in this rural area. As a resident of Worcester Township for the past 17 years, the housing market in Worcester has remained a desirable place to live. If you have any questions or wish to see any of these townhomes in person, please don't hesitate to contact me any time. You can find me at 610-584-8900 at any time. ... more
