Now that we are Under Contract, I wanted to walk us through the next steps‚Äč.

Top 5 Next Things To-Do‚Äč

 

1. 

‚Äč‚Äč 

Schedule

‚Äč 

Your‚Äč Inspection‚Äč

‚Äč

Choose an inspector and schedule for them to come at a time where you could ideally be there towards his completion. Any time works for me, as I can make myself available (or at least have someone be there) to provide access to your new home.

 

‚ÄčWe have 10 Business Days from the going under contract day to provide our response to the inspection report which may include ‚Äčour repair‚Äč requests.  When working to choose which necessary repairs we might should request, I recommend focusing on ‚Äčeconomical and/or safety concerns relevant to 

‚Äč

the ‚ÄčSexy Six

:

Foundation

Electrics

Plumbing

HVAC

Roof

Mold

 

‚ÄčIf there is an issue with one of these ‚Äčsix areas of the house, the seller should consider addressing those items at their expense‚Äč - if the deal allows‚Äč. W‚Äče can review the report together and strategically request any potentially necessary repairs.  Here are a few home inspectors that have come highly recommended to us and have served many of our other favorite clients:

Setup Utilities
Use this checklist as a guide to help setup your utilities. 

‚Äč‚Äč

I recommend setting up utilities for the day of closing, unless we have a delayed occupancy addendum in place, at which point they should be set to transfer on‚Äč the ‚Äčday that occupancy is transferred.

 

1. Electricity: Call Entergy at 1-800-ENTERGY or go to their website here.
2. Gas: Call CenterPoint Energy at 800-992-7552 or go to their website here.
3. Water: Call Central Arkansas Water at (501)210-4910 or go to their website here. You can also email them at: newservice@carkw.com .
4. Termite and/or Pest Control
5. Trash & Recycling: Call 311 or go to their website here.

You may also want to discontinue and/or transfer your TV, Internet, Cable, etc. Here's a little list of who else you might ‚Äčconsider ‚Äčcontact‚Äčing

4. Final Walkthrough

 

‚ÄčWe will want to do ‚Äčour‚Äč final walkthrough before closing to confirm‚Äč that‚Äč no additional damage ‚Äčhas ‚Äčoccurred and that all the potentially agreed repairs have been ‚Äčaccomplished

‚Äč‚Äč
