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.

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

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

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
