A list of things to look for when you attend your final walkthrough inspection

First, let me explain what a final walk-through is:


Typically, the way it all plays out is like this. A few days before closing and after all the repairs have been completed this becomes the last thing the buyers will have to do before they go to closing. It’s the time when buyers can walk through the house and see that the house is in the same condition the home was in or better condition that the home was in the first time the buyer toured the home. Also, ensuring that all repairs that were agreed upon have been made. A tip here is to not rush and simply take your time. In is also worth mentioning that this is not the time to create any new additional repair request.


Here is a list of things to check for during your final walk-through


*Mold: See that no mold had developed in the home


*Plumbing: Make sure that there are no leaks


*HVAC: ensure its still working and functions properly


*Appliances: Make sure they are working and clean


* Garage door: Make sure it opens and closes


* Landscape: Sometimes sellers take trees and plants. Make sure they are still in the yard unless otherwise agreed upon.


*Light fixtures: Turn them on and off to see that they work


*Check the windows function property


*Test the wall outlets: Make sure you can plug something into the outlet to ensure it works

What to bring:


Repair proposal- for reference

Paper and pen -for notes

Phone and charger – to take pictures and check outlets.
