It is up to you. It all depends on what you are trying to do. I know some people that mail offers to LOTS of properties without even an inspection. They base it all off the numbers but with a VERY important Clause. The clause they use is ‘subject to satisfactory inspection by the buyer’. You could also use the clause ‘subject to my partner’s approval (That can be a spouse, cat, maybe even a fictional person…lol).’ If you are going to make lots of offers you may want and wait to inspect it AFTER your offer has been accepted. In a way this method cuts down on the amount of wasted time looking at properties that the seller won’t even look at your offer. This works but you have to make sure to put those clauses in the contract. Even if it is a ‘as is’ sale you can reject to buy it after you inspect the home. So you can still include that in your contract to make it appealing but you will still be able to reject it after inspection. That is the way I view this. Now you decide what you want and need. Good Look.
