It’s quite common when you buy to have the right for a few more visits to the house before closing. One of the best times to do one of those visits is the day before or day of closing.
It’s not uncommon for me to get a call from a client the day after they move in about something that is damaged, or that they got to the house and there is a huge amount of junk left. Going close to the closing lets you see where the seller is at with packing up, so that you can have a sense of whether the house is likely to be empty by the next day.
If you get the chance, a close-to-closing walkthrough is great protection.
