I think it depends. My last purchase was a T34C I offered to buy quickly 'as is' in exchange for a few thousand off the purchase price. I did my own amateur survey.
If you're willing to take the risk, it can be a useful bargaining tool, up to a point. I'd never risk it for a purchase above say... 20K though.
