Do you think the hard part is over once the sales contract is signed?...Think again?
Service begins when the P& S is signed. It doesn’t matter what type of property you are working on, you are the expert…don’t leave your client's to care to chance.
It’s a slipper slope those words have many different meanings. When it comes to selling land it can mean outside vendors want to get their job done as easily as possible. The buyers envision the home in a particular location which would require the excavator doing a test pit 200 feet off the road. It would have been much easier to do the pit 50 feet off the road. The contract would have been valid, once finding a place that supports a septic system. But when the house gets designed a new test would be required in the area the leach field must be located in …for a gravity fed (down hill system).
So no we are not doing it the easy way we are doing the work the way that doesn’t require it to be done twice at the buyer’s expense (which is the right way).
I had to stand over a test pit with a soil scientist and an excavator operator while it snowed today.
I’m not trying to run rough shot over the deal, but let me see the good faith estimate…before the closing (when there is time to work with a lender on fees). Let me get you a second quote for repairs that come up in the inspection, these are some of the items a real estate expert can help you with.
Locating the best place for your septic system can be the all important in preserving the view you fell in love with.
