This step is a must! Do not let yourself become distracted by furniture placement just yet.

Final walk-through are not a home inspection. This is not a time to begin negotiations with the seller to do repairs, nor is it a contingency. A final walk-through is a “viewing” performed anywhere from a few hours to five days before closing, and its primary purpose is to make certain that the property is in the condition you agreed to buy, and that any agreed-upon repairs were made and nothing has gone wrong with the home since you last looked at it.

What should you look for on your final walk-through?

• Turn on and off every light fixture

• Check electrical outlets

• Run water & look under sinks for leaks

• Test all appliances

• Check garage door openers

• Open and close all doors

• Flush toilets

• Inspect ceilings, wall and floors

• Run garbage disposal and exhaust fans

• Test heating and air conditioning

• Open and close windows

• Make sure all debris is removed from the home

I provide helpful tips on the walk-through process, as well as, the entire buying process in my eBook: Home In 10 Steps.  Get your copy here.

Is there anything else that you should look for during a walk-through?  Please leave a comment!
