How do you go about getting a (mobile) home for sale inspected before buying it without it being a problem for the seller?

Some sellers may not want a professional inspector to inspect their homes. Also, can someone walk me through the necessary steps (step by step) of what needs to be done when purchasing a mobile home in order to avoid problems and issues in the future?

    who cares what the seller wants?

     you want it inspected then they comply or you move on

    No seller is going to deny you an inspection.  If you have found one, walk away.

    Put an inspection clause in the contract. If they refuse to allow the inspection clause then they are probably hiding something and you should probably walk away from the deal.

    Anyone NOT hiding something is not going to have a problem with an inspection.   Take the reluctance as a huge red flag.

    If the seller refuses an inspection, that may be a signal that you don't want to buy that home.

    "Some sellers may not want a professional inspector to inspect their homes."    WTF?   Too bad.   Inspection is standard practice.  

    As far as necessary steps...entire books are written on the subject.   No one here is your personal assistant.

    You've already been given advice on this subject and here you are again asking someone to write you an entire guidebook.     No.

    If the seller does not want a professional inspector to inspect the home that means there are some VERY SERIOUS FLAWS that are being hidden and you do not want that home.

    If the seller baulks at an inspection walk away as he has something to hide. Ask for a copy of the seller's contract to read well before you commit.
