Could you imagine the horror of closing on your home and it not being in the same condition that you agreed to buy it in?  Anything can happen at any moment but, it’s best to do a final walk-through as close to your closing date and time as you can.  Yes, this is still necessary even though you should’ve already had it professionally inspected.

During the final walk-through you are checking for the following 4 things:

1. The home is in the condition you agreed to buy it in.

2. All repairs listed in the purchase agreement have been made.

3. All items listed in the purchase agreement as staying with the house have been left in the house.

4. No new damage has been made to the house since the home inspection.

Here’s a printable list of items to look for: Final Walk-Through Checklist
