Because you may not find it otherwise.
The same holds true for home inspections. Sure, the heater is used, and needs a good cleaning, and the grout in the bathroom tub needs to be refinished. That’s kinda’ called HomeOwnership 101. I would suggest that what most buyers will look for is the comfort in knowing that the total value to correct all Major defects does NOT greatly influence their perception of the value of their new Philly condo. A little forgiveness goes a long way.
So, my point? Expect a few bumps in the road. Hopefully nothing too major that might cause you to rethink your purchase. If so, then so be it. We will move on and find you something else. But to expect perfection in say your new Rittenhouse Square condo would probably be setting your expectations up for failure.
When you buy a used car- You get a few glitches here and there- It ain’t new. Ditto for buying a used condo.
