Broom Clean And Then Some

 

Broom Clean And Then Some

 

 

How a house is left after settlement says

a lot about the seller.

 

Our Maryland  Residential Contract Of Sale.. states in paragraph 21:

 'CONDITION OF PROPERTY AND POSSESSION: At settlement, Seller shall deliver possession of the Property and shall deliver the Property vacant, clear of trash and debris, broom clean and in substantially the same condition as existed on the Date of Contract Acceptance.'

Today's settlement went smooth as glass...starting with a final walk through yesterday, with the buyer.

The house was sparkling... the wood floors polished the kitchen and baths immaculate.

It was such a delight to walk into this buyer's new home and feel so welcome. Every inch was more than broom clean it was new home squeaky clean.  Windows, refrigerator, closets, basement, laundry and garage all in beautiful condition.

My buyer who is also a future seller of her present home, stated that she wants to leave her home in this same pristine condition.

The sellers had cleared the house and hired a cleaning service.

 

No, it does not say that in our contract but it SHOULD !

 

The settlement was a breeze. The buyer and I both complimented the listing agent, the seller and the daughter in law on the condition and we expressed our appreciation.

How a house is left after settlement says a lot about the seller.
