Real Estate In A Nutshell: Buyer Visits
Have you bought a home or are in the process, but not sure what happens after you sign on the dotted line?
You’re not the first one! We are here to teach you about what comes next, so you can handle the aftermath like a pro!
Last week, we discussed the financing condition, if you missed this post, no worries, just click, The Financing Condition, now get ready to learn about buyer visits and how to get the best out of them!
When your agent submits an offer to purchase a home, one of the clauses will stipulate that you are able to visit the home 2-3 times, prior to the closing date. These are important and useful for many reasons.
The Importance of Buyer Visits:
- Allows you to see the house prior to closing and remind yourself why you love it so much
- Gives you the opportunity to take measurements for furniture, window coverings, etc
- Gives you the opportunity to show off your home to family and friends prior to closing
- If you’re planning renovations, you can bring your contractors through for brainstorming ideas and get a quote
Always save one of your buyer visits a couple of days before closing to ensure all appliances are in good working order and the house is exactly how you purchased it. Because this will be the last opportunity to let your lawyers know that something is not right and they can try to rectify with the seller prior to closing. Otherwise, it becomes YOUR problem, which can be costly.
