Finally getting to the finish line. After all the anxiety, hard work and waiting, you have almost made it to closing day. Don't end up disappointed about a deal gone wrong because you skipped a few steps.
As annoying as it is, complete all promised repairs. No, you won't be able to enjoy them, but they can make or break your sale. Plan to have everything finished and in working order at least one week before closing.
This will allow time for any last-minute adjustments. Save receipts and invoices, and take before-and-after photos of repaired or improved items.
At the closing table when flying through those documents, slow down when you get to the settlement statement. Check all of these numbers carefully to make sure they match what you were expecting to receive from the sale.

Jennifer grew up in the historic town of Madison in southern Indiana. Jennifer's family always had Real Estate interests. Both her father and grandmother own multiple properties she helped maintain while growing up and her uncle owns a successful Real Estate firm across the river in Nicholasville Kentucky. It was in her blood.
RE/MAX MountainView was a new firm in Gainesville, Virginia and Jennifer was hired as the receptionist. It quickly became apparent she had ambitions and talents well beyond answering telephones. She moved on to bookkeeping and agent hand holding and then to Office Administrative Manager. She earned her Real Estate license in 2001 and began dealing with clients and customers first hand. It was into xicating.
The Real Estate office was sold in 2008 and Jennifer moved to Cincinnati and began working as a Realtor
It's not all work in Cincinnati. There is a new baseball team to root for. There is her daughter's new school to volunteer at. And she is a Field and Suicide Prevention Advocate with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention where she is very active, volunteering and participating in fund-raising events throughout and the annual trip to Capitol Hill to further the cause.
First and foremost, after family, is client care. Jennifer loves Real Estate. She treats her clients like family, guiding them and helping them to make wise decisions and smoothing all the bumps in the road to home ownership. She says, "The best feeling is seeing their smiling faces when they receive the keys to their new homes."
