One last check before documents are signed!

A walk through is the last milestone prior to closing where a buyer visually inspects the property to ensure what they are buying is in substantially the same condition as when they first saw it, and to check on the completion of any negotiated repairs or replacements that were agreed upon to be made.

Everyone has come a long way from contract offer to acceptance, financing, inspections, getting through the appraisal and now one last check before documents are signed and keys are handed over. Because it is one of the last things prior to closing, it can often be a rushed process as sellers are often hurriedly trying to vacate.

 


Don’t plan to start moving things in prior to closing – you legally don’t own the home and there could be issues with insurance coverage in case something happened between the time you placed your belongings in or on the property until the closing.


While it may not seem a big deal to bring over “a few boxes” – this could create some potential liability issues if something went wrong. You may need some interim storage arrangements.
