I don't know all of the specifics of your offer so I can't give a definate answer, however, if you're using the new NC Offer to Purchase and Contract for your offer and you have paid a Due Dilignece Fee and set a Due Diligence Date then you should have time to have the home inspected to see if there are any problems. If there are problems that would make you not want to purchase the home you will be able to walk away from the Offer so long as you notify the sellers of such before the expiration of the Due Diligence period. You would be out of the Due Diligence Fee and the cost of the home inspection but that is basically how the new NC contract works. If there aren't any problems with the home inspection the the "As-Is" shouldn't matter. Basically, you buy a little time to take the home off of the market and have it inspected to see if you truely want to purchase it or not. Your agent should be able to explain this to you. If they can't, ask them to have their Broker-in-Charge to help you understand.
