Your final walkthrough is extremely integral to the home buying process, ensuring the home has been repaired as you and the seller have agreed upon.
You’ve already checked the inspection off the list and if anything was concerning or needed repair, it should have already been addressed between your realtor, the seller, and their agent.
The walkthrough simply confirms that all of the agreed requests for remedy that came out of the inspection have been handled properly.
When you attend your final walk through you should come prepared with two important items. First, your contract. Your contract will contain all necessary information regarding what your seller needs to remedy and what fixtures they have agreed to leave. Second, bring a checklist of items to inspect and look into during your final walkthrough.
If you find anything out of working order or something unexpected, make sure to immediately show this to your real estate agent and address it with them.
It may take a little extra time to be thorough, but the final walkthrough is worth your time and effort to avoid unexpected surprises and unwanted costs
