When to get home inspection on Short Sale?

Quick recap of my last post, we had an offer in on a short sale and waited for short sale approval before ordering a home inspection. The home inspection brought up some rather large repairs that needed to be done, that weren't apparent from a walkthrough.
urbanrealtor had noted that if he was my agent, he wouldn't have let me get to that stage in the process before getting a home inspection done.
My question is, if waiting for short sale approval is too late, when IS the time get the home inspected? Of course in an idea world, you would have every home inspected before you make an offer, but at 300-500 bucks an inspection, thats really not fiscally sound.
Thoughts from the piggs?
