Yes.  You can sell a home in "AS IS" condition.  Most bank owned homes and estate sales are sold this way.  The purchase agreements will still be contingent on inspection though. The buyer will have the right to move forward with the purchase or walk away if a major defect is found during the inspection.

Sure you can. "As is" has become almost a standard in the industry over the past few years. Just make sure you price your house competitively, monitor the market and adjust your price accordingly while selling. This is THE most important thing when you are serious sbout selling your home. Find yourself a good local agent you like and trust. Best of luck.

Yes you can. It has become the 'norm' now with most all seller's. The buyer would still have the option of inspections and if they want to go forward they can or they can cancel. As a seller it is always your choice to set the terms of the sale-the buyer can either accept or not. Since it has become customary now most all buyer's are aware and accept the homes 'as-is'. Find a good agent you trust and they can guide you through it. Good Luck

Yes. Just make sure that "AS-IS" is spelled out in the purchase contract somewhere, probably in one of your counteroffers to the buyer.

Yes you can sell AS-IS, but just because you state AS-IS does not exempt you from disclosure of known problems or liability for failure to disclose

You cannot sell a toxic waste dump and pass it off as a luxury resort "AS-IS".

Absolutely! Repairs and credit is negotiable unless stated differently in the contract. Your realtor should be able to guide you through the process. Regards, Suzanne Looker

What that means is that you will not contribute or do any work, even if the buyer asks you to do some repairs.  If you sell "AS IS" the price must reflect the problems that the property has.

Hi, yes of course you can sell your property in "as is" condition. That will not negate the buyer's right to a home inspection and in many cases, they will still have the right to terminate without losing the earnest money if they find something that they do not want to deal with. You may want to consider having a home inspection done for you and knowing what issues will come up prior to putting the home on the market. You can then be up front with the buyers about known issues which makes a stronger case for the value of your home vs. others.

In my expierience a house is sold as is, there is no recourse unless you can prove fraud or deception. If you are worried about "fixing " the house up for sale Ive had better luck just letting it go . good luck
