Ready or Not, It’s Time: Walk-Through and Paperwork Delays

Nov 16 2015

With my move fast approaching after a 10-month process, I am finally closing. I visited the building on a few occasions to see the model units, but I only stood in my own unit one time before the final walk-through. The drywall had been installed, but it barely looked like the unit I was expecting to see.

In most home sales you do your final walk-through with your inspector to check out the condition of the house. For my condo, which is a new construction, I did the walk-through with my real estate agent and the developer. We marked all imperfections with blue tape. Everything is expected to be touched-up or fixed in the next week for my closing. The day of my closing, I will do one more walk-through and check for more mistakes or repairs. The developer then has 30 days to fix them.
