hip roof info please!

I am in the process of buying a home with a hip roof. Why do these homes have extended eaves and no gutters.Doesnt this pose a problem for rot around the perimeter and also pest infiltration? Thanks

You can have gutters on hip roofs. In fact, most of the hips I have seen do have gutters. It is an individual preference.
