My House Is Under Contract, Why Do I Need To Keep It Clean?
Thanks to your wise choice to hire Realty Executives Bayou Properties, your Alexandria La home found a buyer right out of the gate. And while this is cause for celebration, now is not the time to relax. Let's take a moment to see why it is important to keep your home in top shape until closing.
- Your deal could fall apart--Inspections, appraisals, title drama, etc...can all cause an otherwise strong deal to collapse. If the house is in "show condition" we can search for a replacement buyer immediately. But what if the home has returned into "lived in" condition? Do you want to waste valuable days until the home gets the needed cleaning?
- A clean home can help with the inspection and appraisal-- While a clean kitchen won't fix a leaky roof, inspectors and appraisers will make an assessment of the overall condition of the property. Also, clutter can hinder a home inspector from testing certain items. This usually results in a return trip to the property. Guess who ends up paying for that?
- The buyer will visit the home during escrow--In Central Louisiana it is not uncommon for the buyer to return to the home multiple times. If the house is a wreck this can raise an eyebrow with the buyer. If the visible areas of the home are filthy, what do the hidden parts look like?
- A clean home will reduce closing day drama-- ever checked into a dirty hotel room? No imagine checking into a dirty hotel that you just signed a 30 year loan on? The home should be 100% clean when the seller hands over the keys. Do you really want to be scrubbing walls 30 minutes prior to closing ?
