It just depends on the situation. If you've taken good care of it, cleaning it could probably make it look new enough to server any purpose you need. I would definitely suggest having a professional look at it. They would be able to tell you if the carpet is salvageable by just cleaning it, or if you would need to replace it. Hopefully you'll be able to find help from the right people so you can make the right decision for your needs.

The sales contract calls for you to use a licensed professional home inspector.
If you already have a specific concern beforehand, then you may want to also engage a plumber or roofer or.....just for those specific items.
Ask your lawyer or Realtor what they suggest.

I would say about $5,000. Your lender should able to tell you exactly how much.

Often times you can. If you have a strong contract and a good Realtor to help you through the process you have a chance.

Mary Wallace answered:
I would say 25% of my contracts involve the seller needing post closing possession. The standard rent/amount the seller pays the buyer is 1/30th Principal, Interest, Insurance, Taxes or PITI. This amount is intended to cover the housing expenses the buyer incurs by allowing the seller to rent back. An escrow is also set aside from the seller's proceeds with usually 1% of the purchase price to cover any damages caused when moving out.

Some sellers have not found where they will move to or do not want to cram closing and moving into one day so post closing possession gives them a buffer. Post closing possession does need to be outlined in the contract or added later via attorney review. The buyer and seller do have to agree on these terms. Sometimes my seller client's want to add possession for peace of mind and in many instances end up not needing it or just needing a couple days.

Sally Grenier answered:
Ask your Realtor. Maybe he/she can contact other agents who have sold those units in the past. Or, you can also try asking homeowners themselves! I am representing a buyer, who is purchasing a bank owned condo. The bank won't provide any HOA info. I just contacted several homeowners in the area and they were happy to give me the info. ... more
