Question - Lizette, when the home inspector finished the inspection he asked why the listing agent might be hosting an open house since the property is pending and will close in a couple of weeks.
What if it gets damaged? I'm not sure I want people walking through my house.
Can we request that the agent not hold any more open houses in it? A.J
Answer - A.J., My first thought is that also, but after I think more about it I can see why the builder wants to keep his craftsmanship available for the public to view before it closes and you get the key.
He needs to pre-sell more homes.
This one is a model home and it is a bit different since there is not another one finished to show.
In regular resale homes, the owner is in charge until it is sold to the buyer at closing.
He can do whatever with it until time to hand over the keys as long as he doesn't do any damage.
Just try to stay calm until we do our final walk through and make sure everything looks like it did last time you were there.
