Congratulations – you’re almost at the end of your buying adventure. But, there are still a few loose ends to make sure are taken care of before your big move-in day.
The final walk-through inspection takes place the day before or the day of the closing. Visit the property and verify that everything is in working order. Make sure that everything is the same as when you last viewed the property with no extra items left behind or missing.
I will provide you with a list of useful telephone numbers for turning on home services and utilities after the closing. These numbers will be helpful in getting your new property up and running.
Don’t worry – I am ready and able to assist you if any unforeseen glitch pops up at any stage in your transaction. My experience and the wide-ranging Sotheby’s network can handle any problems you may encounter.
Depending on the outcome of these inspections, one of two things may happen:
1. Either each milestone is successfully closed and the contingencies will be removed, bringing you one step closer to the close, or
2. The buyer, after reviewing the property and the papers, requests a renegotiation of the terms of contract (usually the price).
