A home inspection contingency means that the buyer can back out of the transaction without losing their earnest money deposit if they learn about major issues with the home vai the inspection. The decision to include or not include a home inspection contingency in the terms of the sale will be yours. Keep in mind that those same terms will carry over and apply when you buy back the home from Better Real Estate. Therefore, if you waive the inspection contingency with the original seller, you will also need to waive the inspection contingency when purchasing back from Better Real Estate. Including the contingency can make your offer less competitive in some markets.
