A due diligence period includes the time it takes to conduct inspections.

It may also include the period when the house is under contract until all contingencies are resolved or removed.

Either way, inspections must be done in a timely manner.


Due diligence means that you do your homework on the entire process from beginning to end.

Start by learning about your local market. Then shop around for competent professionals to help you.

Finally, be on top of every issue that arises. Don’t just wait for your agent to advise you, make sure you really understand what is going on.
