Time Saving Tips for your Final Walk-Through in Scottsdale

walk_throughBuying a house is one of the biggest purchases many people will make in their lifetime in North Scottsdale Real Estate. Therefore, it is important to always do a final walk-through the property with your real estate agent before closing. This allows the buyer, with guidance from their agent, to ensure the property they are purchasing is in acceptable condition. If repairs were requested it is also a time to make sure they are completed in an acceptable fashion.

When walking through the property if you discover certain repairs, as stated in the contract, are not completed. Then have your agent document the findings and send the sellers a list of items to be completed before closing. Also, if certain items or fixtures are taken and/or sellers’ personal property has yet to be removed this too can be documented and fixed before closing.

A big mistake that some buyers make is forgoing the final walk through instead of reassessing the property one last time in North Scottsdale Real Estate. Often times the buyers feel that they have been to the property numerous times, and everything seems okay so they pass on the walk through. On many occasions buyers have waived the walk through and found themselves moving into a dirty house or one still containing the seller’s debris and/or personal property.

North_Scottsdale_Real_Estate_FInal_WalkthroughUnfortunately, it is not always possible to do a final walk through after the sellers have vacated the property in North Scottsdale Real Estate. Sometimes the sellers are not set to move until the real estate transaction closes. If this is the case then it is still highly recommended to have a walk through. This is to make sure that sellers are at least in the progress of moving out.

What can you do if the sellers do not adhere to their contractual obligations (i.e take items that were included in the sale, not fix repairs, or leave debris and/or personal property)? First, make sure that your agent immediately notifies the listing agent to see if the situation can be rectified. Then you can delay closing, if possible, until all contractual obligations are met.

However, it is not always possible to delay closing so an alternative would be to fix all the contractual obligations and send a bill to the seller. If you do not get reimbursed consult a real estate attorney immediately in North Scottsdale Real Estate.
