I have two real estate transactions closing at the end of this month. The one closing today cost the Seller and the Seller's Listing Broker $1000 due to items that were not done or not done correctly in time for closing. These mistakes could have been avoided if the Seller had carefully read and reviewed his purchase agreement, or had the Listing Broker taken the time to do a final walk-through with the seller. Issues included: no required carbon monoxide detectors, attached speakers were removed although they were specified in the purchase agreement, bags of trash and garbage left behind.
