Curious why you have a final walkthrough as a buyer? Let’s talk about what you should be looking for when you’re doing your final walkthrough.


Buyer’s Final Walkthrough


Okay so, you’re buying a home. Right before you sign on the dotted line, you want to make sure the place is still standing, that is called your final walkthrough. The final walkthrough, we’re gonna go through, we’re gonna check things, like is the HVAC turning on? Are the lights turning on, is the stove turning on, is the refrigerator still there? Did they bang up the house when they moved out? It’s almost like a mini-inspection, but instead of a couple hours, usually more like 15 to 25 minutes. So you’re in and out, but you’re trying to make sure that everything is good, right before you go fork over all this money.


Now if there were some repairs that were negotiated in the home inspection, this is also your opportunity to make sure that those were done properly. So that’s your final walkthrough, it is your last chance to check on the property right before you go sign. Hope that makes good sense, if you have questions, please leave them in the comments below.
