Purchase and Rehab Checklist

This should be completed by broker and investor. The contract, disclosures and any other documentation can be found in Dotloop.

Earnest Money should be delivered to appropriate party and we will upload a copy or receipt to Dotloop.

Make sure your lender has a copy of sales contract, disclosures, and addendums.

The lender may require rehab scope to be provided. Some lenders require rehab scope on their own form. Please verify with lender requirements.

Make sure to order a vacant property policy for your investment. This is a critical step and is overlooked by investors paying cash as there is no lender requiring this item for closing. A vacant property policy should be ordered. Homeowners, landlord policies do not cover vacant homes. Please check with you insurance agent for specific requirements. A vacant property policy is usually double the cost of a homeowners policy.

Once you have closed on your property, please check with your renovation contractor regarding activation date. All utilities will need to be activated for renovation team to start remodeling. They will meet with utility company at property and will coordinate this with you. You can find utility contacts for the town property is located in using the button below. Make sure to record account number as you will need this to deactivate the account on the property is sold and closed.

  • Gas
  • Water
  • Electric

  • Let them know you have closed.
  • Inform them of days when utility companies will be at the property to activate.

This is optional but highly recommended! The qualitylacontrol inspector will visit property bi-weekly from purchase date to close date with end buyer. You will receive a detailed photo report after each visit. This will be sent via email and uploaded to Dotloop.

  • Provides detailed photo report of property during rehab.
  • Will meet with renovation team for a final walk-through and provide photographed report.
  • Monitors property during marketing period, documented with photos.
  • Continues to visit during closing period, up until home closes.

*Quality control inspector is NOT a licensed home inspector. They are visting property to report rehab progress, cosmetic condition issues and property preservation.

Make sure to keep your investment looking at it’s best by ordering Grass/Snow service.


Many investors will stage their property prior to listing. If your home needs a little “oomph” this can do the trick. Many of our investors implement this on every project they complete.


If you have hired quality control, this will be completed by QC. If you are monitoring your own property, please schedule with rehab team prior to listing home.

We highly recommend having a home inspection company professionally inspect the property before listing for sale. There may be items that could potentially be “deal killers” when end buyer completes their home inspection. We can mitigate deal loss by completing this before listing for sale.

This is not a punch list. Use this inspection to determine if there are critical items that would deter a buyer from purchasing your property. Chase Real Estate investors get special pricing of $250.00 for the home inspection.

*This service is conducted by a Illinois Licensed Home Inspector
