What Does Selling Your House “As Is” Mean

 

Selling a house “as is” means that the seller is offering the property for sale in its current condition and will not be making any repairs or improvements before the sale. The buyer will be purchasing the house “as is” and will be responsible for any repairs or issues that may be present.

This type of sale is usually used when the seller is not able or willing to make repairs or is in a hurry to sell the property. It can also be used when the property has known issues that the seller does not want to or can’t afford to fix, such as a leaky roof, outdated electrical or plumbing systems, or structural problems.

When a property is sold “as is”, the buyer must have a thorough inspection done to determine the extent of any issues and to understand the costs associated with fixing them. The buyer should also be aware that they may not be able to get a conventional mortgage. In this case, some sellers may be willing to finance the sale themselves, while others prefer to be paid in cash.

It is important to note that even if a property is sold “as is,” the seller is still required to disclose any known issues with the property to the buyer. This can include things like past water damage, radon levels, lead paint, and other potential hazards.

When selling a house “as is” it’s important to price it accordingly. If the property needs repairs, it should be priced lower than similar houses in the area to account for the cost of the repairs.
