What Does Selling “As-Is” Mean?
Selling your property “as is” has sometimes been misunderstood as thinking that is code for “selling my house for cheap”. That may make sense since a lot of home buying companies typically use “as is” to describe the state that they will take the house in. However, the phrase “as is” doesn’t mean that at all!
“As Is” is actually used in the official Texas Real Estate Contracts (TREC) as shown below. These are used on EVERY house sold in Texas – That means if you have bought or sold a house in Texas, you have done so as-is!
But don’t just take our word for it. Check it out at the official TREC website (linked below)
As Is From The Texas Real Estate Commission
As you can see zoomed in, there are two checkboxes, for how someone buying the house would accept the property:
- “Buyer accepts the property As Is.”
- “Buyer accepts the Property As Is provided Seller, at Seller’s expense, shall complete the following specific repairs and treatments:”
Are Most Homes Sold As Is?
Most homes are actually sold as is. This may come as a surprise, but it actually makes sense. When you buy a house from someone they usually aren’t providing any building warranties for the property.
Above in the contract, it means that instead of checking box number 2 above, we would be checking box number 1 where we won’t require you to do any work at your expense. This is important, as one of the key benefits of working with a home buying company is that you don’t need to do the work required to list your house for a traditional sale.
