When we enter an agreement more than 90 days before the deadline, we will visit the properties before the deadline. If we are engaged less than 90 days before the deadline, we will visit the property as soon as possible. We know that an agent cannot know the property effectively until they see it up close and personal. Many additional and specific questions about the property arise due to what is observed at an onsite inspection. Issues that could have a substantial impact on value are sometimes missed or overlooked when properties are not visited.
