Dead lines, you need to know them when buying real estate in St. Pete

Buying property Step 9

Important in your buying real estate process. I really want to stress the point of dead lines and I think the best way it to give you some examples of things that can happen.

It is important to NOT wait till the last day to work on your contingencies.

Worst case scenario you might need time to exercise plan B in the real estate buying process.

Home inspector fell of the latter and could not finish inspection.

It rained and home inspector could not get on the roof, so inspection is not finished

Home inspectors computer broke in the middle of doing your report, he lost all data and has to go back and inspect again.

Home inspectors dog ate report before he could fax it.

Insurance can not be issued, someone forgot to order a 4 point inspection.

Hurricane is about to hit Florida next week, sorry no insurance will be issued as soon as you are in the famous “box”

Lender is too busy to submit a commitment letter

Lender lost part of your paperwork and without that, no commitment letter.

Lender missed that you are divorced and prepared all paperwork in the wrong name.

Lender forgot to tell you about points, now you are upset and will not sign.

Termite inspector went to the wrong address, now that have to do it again.

Survey was done in time, but the girl who writes it up is on vacation.

No, I did not make this up, this is very real and it is only a few of the many things that can happen. So, please don’t wait till the last minute. Each one of these items could kill this real estate deal for you.                                                                         Anne Hensel       727 410 7777
