Can i have the seller pay inspection fee?Im a first time home buyer and will be getting assistance with down payment/closing costs. I wanted to know if its possible to ever have the seller pay for the inspection? Especially if the seller is motivated. I would hate to wait 3 weeks to obtain the money just because I don't have the inspection fee. then my agent tells me that I pay for the appraisal also which i thought the lender did? then I have to also pay earnest money as well. $500. I can do but the rest of my money is tied up until closing so any suggestions? I appreciate any advice. the house has been on the market for over 3 months and now we are getting into the fall. If I have to I can wait but don't prefer as I do like the house.
