11 After Closing On Your Home

There is a frenzy of activity a few days prior to closing. Any last minute obstacles that could hinder the loan process, contacting the title company to ensure they have everything necessary for closing, and tying up any loose ends, are just a few examples. Add to that, the fact that everyone is in the process of moving...Phew!

We set the appointment with the closer. We will also find out if you will need to bring any funds to closing ,as well as what form of payment is necessary. All of this is done to ensure your closing process flows smoothly.

What is a Walk-through:

You as the Buyer, have the right to walk through the home prior to closing. There are 3 purposes for this event. First, to ensure the home is in the same condition as when you originally saw it. Second, to ensure the items covered on the inspection objection form are complete. Third, there are no new uncovered defects, like a hole in the wall, that was previously covered by a wall hanging.

What a Walk-through is not:

A walk-through is not a re-inspection of the home, attempting to find things that may have been missed during the purchase.

One Final Note on the Walk-through:

The condition of the home is expected to be left broom-clean. Although this term is widely used in the real estate industry, there is no formal definition. Don't expect a professional repaint, spotless cleaning, or carpet cleaning -- those items are things that should be covered during the contract negotiation. The home should be free from dirt and debris.
