I'm trying not to.

Someone else reminded me that he's the house inspector, but he's MIA and probably very busy. I had to get it inspected on short notice.

Good Luck! If he's good the report will be long. Do not feel overwhelmed, there is bound to be something wrong with the house.

Creeksitter hunted me down and graciously offered his services. However, I had a deadline, so I will be going with Criterium.

Thanks, creeksitter!

Hik, I still have that club handy!! It works.

You will be fine. Even folks who have bought and sold many houses go through a last minute panic with trying to get all of the details ironed out. Rely on your agent to handle most of the scheduling. She is probably very good at it.

Have a check list - very handy - of all of the things that have to be accomplished before closing, then mark them off with the date, time, who handled it, and follow-up. This will help you to keep everything organized and you will see the to do part shrinking daily. That helps.

It will be over before you know it and YOU will be the expert!

I cried for two days - actual crying - prior to buying this house. I just did not want to buy it. But, we made it through closing and it is home. Now, I cry because I want to sell it!

I cry, too, because things keep breaking and I have to find someone to fix them.

Which comes right back to the point of the thread-- a good home inspector! I'm glad you found one! And I hope the inspection went well.
