Blue Tape Kills

I attended my first walk-through tonight without blue tape!  5-7 days before closing, developers and on-site customer satisfaction managers will schedule a walk-through with a new buyer.  It is usually called a “blue tape” or a “punch list” final walkthrough.

Typically, you will point out  scuffs, scratches, chips and blemishes that need to be fixed prior to moving in.  In the course of 8 years, I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly.  Thankfully, just days before Thanksgiving and only a week away from closing we had one tonight that was perfect.  It took less than 20 minutes and we were out the door with a smile on our face.  No nicks, dings, scratches, dents, scrapes, scratches, or holes.  I assume that there is nothing better for a buyer than having a crystal clear inspection of their new unit.
