o you’ve listed your home for sale, and it has gone under contract—now what? Today I’ll talk about the next stage of the process.

Once your home goes under contract here in Illinois, your buyer is most likely going to have a home inspection within five business days of an accepted contract. When the buyer last viewed your home in person, you had it looking great, picked up, cleaned, and made it smell good—be sure to replicate that experience during the home inspection as though it were a second home showing.

As a seller, you should not be present for the inspection…the buyers and their agent will be there. For upper-range, multi-million dollar properties, sometimes I or a representative of our team will be present for the inspection, but you should not be during the process. 

If you have any questions about this phase of the home-selling process or anything else to do with real estate, please feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I’d love to speak with you.
