(This is a super helpful tip for all our REALTOR users.)
While this might sound super specific and particularly picky, it’s important to make sure buyers and sellers are honest about the working condition of appliances just before a closing. It’s not unheard of for a deal to fall apart because the buyer claims that awesome range they fell in love with suddenly isn’t working the day of a walk-through, and the buyer demands it be fixed or that they be refunded the repair cost at closing, while the seller claims it was working fine when they moved out and refuses to budge.
Stuff of nightmares, right?
“When doing a walk thru just before closing (especially if a warranty is in place) take a picture of appliances working, like the thermostat showing that the A/C is cooling the home. Also take a picture of the water heater and the outside A/C unit. That way if they call in a claim the first couple of days we have evidence that it was working at closing. We never want to hear the item never worked for the buyer.”
A simple solution for making sure everything goes smoothly! It’s always awesome to get real world tips from the wise voice of reason, and Brian is indeed that.
