Shouldn’t I do an inspection of the property just before closing?

Updated March 13, 2023.

Yes. It is important that you do a “walk through” of the property to make certain that the property is in substantially the same condition as when you submitted your purchase offer. Once you have closed, you are deemed to have accepted the property in its present condition (except for matters which were misrepresented to you by the seller). Therefore, you must raise any objections prior to closing. If you discover any problems during this inspection, contact your real estate agent and attorney immediately.
