Even if the Spring Texas home you are interested in is being advertised “AS IS”, you still have the right to have the home inspected. Homes that are being sold as a short sale or as a foreclosure are typically sold ”AS IS” and it means the owner/seller of the home is selling it in its present condition. Whatever that condition may be.
You are accepting the home with all its faults and deficiencies. The phrase “AS IS” is a classic buyer beware situation where the buyer should take the time and spend the money to have the home professionally examined and inspected.
If the inspections reveal more problems than you are willing to deal with you can get out of the real estate contract. But there are defined time frames you have to abide by if you want to terminate the contract due do the home’s condition.

I have had the pleasure of partnering with Jill Wente on several real estate transactions. Her attention to detail and knowledge of the real estate industry are top notch! She is honest, straight forward, organized, and completely in tune with each of her transactions. She asks questions and truly listens to the information given to her and applies it in her future transactions. She is wonderful to work with and proves in each transaction that her top priority is that her clients are given the best customer service and are comfortable with each step of the process. She works proactively rather than reactively, and prepares herself for any questions her clients may have during the process, and does so before the question arises. Her clients are lucky to have her on their side! I look forward to any and all opportunities I have to partner with Jill in the future. read less
