In a highly competitive market, some buyers may take drastic measures like paying well above the listing price or fast-tracking the closing process. But the one thing you may not want to do is waive inspections.
Here are five ways waiving inspections can negatively affect your home purchase, according to RISMedia.com.
You may be robbed of negotiating leverage you could have gained from discovering undisclosed problems.
You won't know what kinds of costly repairs you could need to make. The home may not even be up to code.
Your homeowners insurance may not cover the repair cost of pre-existing problems.
You may uncover health and safety hazards that put you and your family at risk, such as issues with the structure, foundation, electricity, or plumbing.
You may be sacrificing the peace of mind that comes from getting professional inspections.

Jennifer grew up in the historic town of Madison in southern Indiana. Jennifer's family always had Real Estate interests. Both her father and grandmother own multiple properties she helped maintain while growing up and her uncle owns a successful Real Estate firm across the river in Nicholasville Kentucky. It was in her blood.
RE/MAX MountainView was a new firm in Gainesville, Virginia and Jennifer was hired as the receptionist. It quickly became apparent she had ambitions and talents well beyond answering telephones. She moved on to bookkeeping and agent hand holding and then to Office Administrative Manager. She earned her Real Estate license in 2001 and began dealing with clients and customers first hand. It was into xicating.
The Real Estate office was sold in 2008 and Jennifer moved to Cincinnati and began working as a Realtor
It's not all work in Cincinnati. There is a new baseball team to root for. There is her daughter's new school to volunteer at. And she is a Field and Suicide Prevention Advocate with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention where she is very active, volunteering and participating in fund-raising events throughout and the annual trip to Capitol Hill to further the cause.
First and foremost, after family, is client care. Jennifer loves Real Estate. She treats her clients like family, guiding them and helping them to make wise decisions and smoothing all the bumps in the road to home ownership. She says, "The best feeling is seeing their smiling faces when they receive the keys to their new homes."
