Utilities & More

One of the most common questions I get from sellers is, “When can I take the utilities out of my name?”   The simple answer is – the day after the house closes.  Per our real estate contract in Washington, the power, water and sewer have to remain active while the house is under contract.  This is so inspectors and appraisers can do their job as well as potential buyers are safe while touring your home.   Another reason for keeping the power on is for hot summer days and the cold winter months.  Again, remember, you want your property to “shine” to possible buyers.  There is nothing worse than walking into a too cold or too hot home-  it doesn’t set the right tone for a showing.   Especially in the winter, you don’t want any pipes to freeze and cause a lot of damage to your house or to the buyer when they get things turned back on.
