Fannie-Mae home needs roof and the lender is indicating 'as-is' sale. Anyone has any thoughts?Hi, I am an investor, not a first time home buyer. I have been accepted on a homepath Fannie-Mae home that I offered over the sale price. I got the inspection done and realized that the roof needs to be replaced. The lender wrote that the roof repairs is a requirement for funding. We sent that letter to the seller (Mind you, we did not get appraisal as this is Homepath home and not a requirement) and they rejected this as 'as-is' sale. Its strange as Fannie-Mae, I hear, typically does conform to the funding requirements. Does anyone has any ideas/suggestions?
