The buyers for The Red Garage House had their appraiser and inspector come out to the house this evening, and they said they’d love for us to be there with them during the appraisal and inspection. Of course, we were happy to attend…
The appraiser came by first, spent about 15 minutes at the property, and asked me to send him an itemized list of the work we did on the property. Hopefully, we won’t have too much trouble appraising this one, though who really knows in this weird market.
Then the inspector came by. He spent about 90 minutes at the property, and found absolutely nothing serious to note. There were a few little things — like switches that didn’t seem to control anything, exposed wires where the garbage disposal used to be, etc. We’ll have our guys out there in the next few days to fix some of the things that were important to the buyer, and then hopefully we can have a smooth closing, without any major roadblocks.
I’m still a bit concerned about the who FHA process given that we’re not yet at 90 days, and that the Warranty Deed only got recorded last week. But, again, I’m hoping the lender deals with these issues without ever having to get either the buyer or us involved.
