Meeting clients, contractors for "final walk-through" in Sauganash this morning

Our client is buying on an attractive block in Sauganash, Chicago.  The snow drapes the original custom homes that line the winding blocks.
 I was out in this morning's cold and snow to attend our buyer's "final walk-through" at 5846 N Kingsdale, Chicago IL 60646 in Sauganash.  Our buyer client will be closing a home this week. Typically we'll try to have the final walk-through the day of closing when the home is vacant.  In this case the current owner will be in the home for one day after closing.  The special circumstance was part of the over-all home purchase deal. 

We had a few minor details to check.  The seller had repairs made to the home as part of the purchase agreement.  Bob and I make sure our client and her closing attorney have the invoices for the work.  

The cold and snow did not dampen our client's excitement in anticipation of her upcoming closing.
We arranged for some of our regular contractors to meet at the house during this morning's walk-through.  Our home buyer client wants to begin work ASAP on a few projects before she moves in. By meeting during the walk-through the contractors can look at the scope of the work, make some estimates and plan on starting work on the day after closing. 

I'm also meeting the contractors at the house this week to get them started while our client is at work.  Our years of experience and long time industry relationships are available to make our client's lives easier and home ownership less stressful.  We look forward to a smooth closing!

Fun facts:
4 homes have closed this year so far in the the Sauganash neighborhood ranging from $310,000 to $650,000.
 9 homes are currently under contract and about 18 homes are listed for sale in the neighborhood.
