He made an all cash offer on a foreclosed property which was countered at a higher price because there was a second offer from and FHA buyer for more money. He agreed to the higher price and then did his inspections. there...
I recently got a newsletter from a mortgage broker at Princeton Capitol, confirming what I have been telling clients for the last 16 years.  If you are purchasing a home, or accepting an offer to purchase a home and the contract is "As-Is" do not discuss the specific inspection reports in the con...
