Final Walk-through

Your Final Steps Towards Owning Your New Property

Any homebuyer should make a final walk-through of their perspective new property before signing the closing papers. This is to ensure that there has been no new or undiscovered damage to the property. It also ensures that everything that is supposed to be included as part of the transaction has not been removed, and is in the home at closing. This gives the homebuyer one last chance to make sure that everything is intact and their opportunity to verify that everything is a go at your end and nothing looks changed. At this point, if you do see anything that looks different it is your opportunity to point it out and ask questions. Don’t panic if you do notice something amiss—usually there is a very simple explanation for it that makes total sense.

Take a careful walk around the homes exterior and make sure that the windows, siding, roof, gutters and foundation all look acceptable. Walk around the interior as well and test the doors, toilets, lights, appliances, and anything else you can see in the house. Test the garage door and/or garage door opener, as you are doing your walk around. Take this opportunity to ask for a kind of blessing, if you are religious. Get things off to a great start!

This is really an exciting time for you and is your last time walking into the house as a guest. The next time you enter the house will your new home. Enjoy this final walk around and take in the significance of being in the home this one last time as the potential buyer and soon it will be your new property. Once you have determined that everything is in place and in proper working order, you can go ahead and sign all of the closing papers feeling more confident in your choices. This final walk-through offers you the certainty you need to put pen to paper and own this property. It also gives you clarity and the peace of mind of knowing that you have made the right decision and feel good about acquiring your new home.
