One Closing day surprises that you are not going to want to miss!


The dreaded walk-through is the top surprise on closing day and for good reason. 


The final walk-through happens the morning of closing so there’s little time to prepare for whatever problems may arise. You never know when a sudden storm could have flooded out the house or those ugly flaws or cracks get exposed once the furniture is out of the home.


Before you have a panic attach, ask yourself how bad can it really be? 


If the problem is serious, like a flood, you should defiantly proceed with caution. If the problem is minor, don’t fret over an easy fix. Always make sure to inspect the home thoroughly before your final walk-through to avoid last minute surprises.   


Don’t be shy in asking for another look after a big storm to see if the house does have flood damage. 


Lastly, always remember a last-minute discovery of a problem is not necessarily a deal breaker. Just ask the seller to recover the cost of the repairs and put the fund in escrow. Be sure to come up with estimates from professionals on how much a fix would cost.
