Final Walk Through: What to Expect

Buyers from time to time will want to skip a final walk through when closing on a home. After all, aren’t most sellers honest people?

A Final Walk Through is when the home buyer tours the property, usually the evening before or the morning of closing. The purpose is to confirm that the home is in the same condition now as when the offer was written. The final walk through is the time to ensure that the personal property items that were agreed to be included in the sale, are still present.  This is also the deadline for any agreed upon repairs to be completed.

Lauren Sroubek from Neighborhood Loans offers some tips on the right questions to ask, what to bring with you and a checklist for your Final Walk Through to make your home buying a satisfying, less stressful experience.
