Things To Look For In Your Final Walk-Through

The final walk-through is usually the last chance to see the house that you are intending to purchase in an open and empty state.  This is an excellent opportunity to look over the property without obstructions.  Use it to focus on potential problems and costs.

It’s a particularly good chance to assess the state of floors, walls, windows and ceilings without distraction. Examine them thoroughly for any indications of structural defects or painted-over problems.

If any problems that were already flagged have not yet been addressed, this should be raised prior to closing. It is generally the seller’s responsibility to fix them.  Remember, once the deal has closed, you own the home and its problems.
