The closing process can often take months, during this time problems can arise within your home. Also, there is a high chance that certain items were concealed or hidden at the original inspection due to home owner clutter.
The Pre-closing inspection is your final opportunity to make sure that there are no major hidden defects that may have been previously hidden. This also gives a chance to check appliances, heat, and other important utilities of the home that may be in different condition than they were at he initial inspection. Lastly, any agreed upon repairs can be checked to ensure they were properly completed.
