Yep. My experience says: You gotta go inside eventually, unless you can inspect the entire interior from the exterior (and there are those properties that are like this). You can always make your offer subject to interior inspection.
In spite of efforts to make worse case scenario repair estimates, you can’t really tell until you see what’s in there. There is a difference if the interior is burned out, has a floor plan, is gutted, has any systems in place (wiring, plumbing, heat systems, etc.) has the dreaded black mold everywhere, etc.
Also, your buyers are most likely going to want to see the inside as well. They might appreciate knowing exactly what it is that you are selling.
You learn a lot about houses from going in them, and under them. Just my experience here.
