Not everyone can have those options. In markets like SF Bay area, the houses are so scarce, you have to put the offer with zero contingencies. Even with that and having your ass on the line, you still have to compete with other offers or the cash offers. When sellers can sell homes without anyone poking their noses in to their nasty business, why would they bother to sell someone who comes with boat load of contingencies?
If you're paying that much for a house, you're mostly paying for the land. It makes sense to buy the house without contingencies, but still have a good inspection so that you know what to fix.

Don't change outlets if your wiring does not have a ground wire in the box. Otherwise someone plugging in a device would have no idea it's not actually grounded.

Or change it for a GFCI. You're supposed to label those, though I don't know what somebody would do with that information.

A prior owner of my house installed three 3 prong outlets in some rooms without bothering to ground them. Perhaps I can add these to double the non-grounding!
You would need to triple up. Doubling up would cancel the non-grounding. Source: Am electrocution-ist.

I've done this in my house with several outlets. I put a GFCI at the beginning of the circuit and swapped out the two prong with 3 prong and labeled them "no ground, gfci protected" with the stickers that come with the gfci outlets.

For me, it's better than than using these unwieldy adapters.

Will help prevent electrocution behind but won't reduce fire hazard or prevent electrocution before the GFCI. An AFCI breaker plus the GFCI would probably offer similar benefits to rewiring.

I meant, if you don't have a ground in your box, don't just put a 3 prong outlet in there so you can plug in 3 prong items. Others will likely use it not knowing there is no ground protection. Using these is a much better option.

Gfci works without ground. You can put it in your electric box and keep two prong outlets.

Pssshhh. Who needs these? Real tough guys just snap off the safety ground prong with a flick of the thumb.
