What does the term "as-is" mean?

The term "as is" means the seller is not going to make any repairs to the property. This, however, does NOT mean that the seller is exempt from disclosing known problems with the property. The seller must disclose all known defects to the buyer. Not disclosing known defects is fraud, a very serious crime. Homes sold "as is" often bring a lower sales price, as the buyer will make price adjustments for known, necessary repairs. It is wise, and recommended, that the buyer have a professional home inspection done on the property. I also recommend that the buyer have a roof inspection done by a qualified roofing company, as well as have the pool and air conditioning system inspected by a service company.
