Ask for repairs or credits
After you view your inspection results, you might want to ask your seller to correct some of the problems you found. There are three possible ways to solve the problems:
Ask for a discounted purchase price in light of the results.
Request that the seller gives you credits to cover some of your closing costs.
Ask that the seller have the problems fixed before you close.
Your real estate agent will submit your requests to the seller's agent. If you're buying a house that's for sale by the owner, your agent will negotiate with the seller directly. The seller might accept your request, or they might reject it. If your seller rejects your request, it's up to you to decide how to proceed. If you have an inspection contingency in your offer letter, you can walk away from the sale and keep your earnest money deposit.
You should do one last walk-through alone in your new home before you close, even if you're 100% committed to the property. This time allows you to check and make sure that the seller has made the repairs you requested and cleared out the property.
Walk through the home and make sure the seller hasn't left any belongings. Check your repair areas if you requested them and keep an eye out for pests. You may also want to double-check your home's systems one final time to make sure everything is in working order. If everything looks good, it's time for you to confidently move toward closing.
