Final Walk Through

Almost there! We will do a final walk through of the property to make sure there are no new problems, and ensure that all prior issues found during the inspection were corrected.

As your Realtor I will always recommend that this step is not overlooked. Many nightmare situations have occurred with buyer who skip the final walk-through when buying a house. Let's discuss why it is so important to ensure you perform a final walk-through prior to closing.

This walk-through occurs either the day before closing or the day of closing (settlement). One of the many reason to do a final walk-through of the property is to ensure that the previous owner (or builder) has cleaned out the property, has not caused any new damage and/or ensure that any repairs (if required) were performed.

Just think about, what if you skip this step..... What if the previous owner left a junk all over the house, caused new damage, or removed fixtures that were supposed to stay with the house? What recourses if any would you have. Not many since you have already bought the house!

Since the final walk through is not an Inspection, this may be a good time to have the seller show you how to operate major systems and appliances. While they are showing you how the appliances work you are also making sure they all work and are clean!
