What’s the purpose of the buyers final walk thru?
The purpose of the final walk thru is to confirm the home is in the same condition as it was at the time you went under contract on it. You want to confirm that no damage occurred to the home during the sellers move out. Confirm that no damage has occurred to the home while it was sitting vacant. During the final walk thru check the condition of the walls and windows of the home. Don’t forget to check underneath the sinks for water leaks. Check to see that the sellers have left the house in a broom clean condition. Have the sellers removed all of their personal belongings and trash? Confirm that the agreed upon non-realty items have not been removed.
The other purpose of the final walk thru is to confirm that all of the agreed upon repairs have been completed. Ask the sellers for the repair receipts before the final walk thru. Walk around the house and confirm that all repairs have been completed
When is the final walk thru performed?
The final walk thru is typically performed the day before or on the day you are scheduled to close on your Spring Texas home. Upon completion of the final walk thru, your real estate agent will request your signatures on a buyers final walk thru form. You are acknowledging that you have performed a final walk thru of the home before closing and the date it occurred.

She is THE best agent we have ever had in our past moves, and I have similar feedback from my colleagues whom she helped moving to Houston this summer.
We really were impressed by her knowledge about the Houston housing market and related policy, and she was always there to answer the questions we had. She was very quick to find out what we really wanted, and walked with us home by home very patiently till we found the one we like. She spent many hours with us in the design center, making suggestions from carpet colors to light fixtures. Since we moved from other states and were not in town when the house was being built, she walked through the house and sent us progress photos everyweek. Mostly impressively, she worked hard to deal with the builder on the progress and quality issues on our behalf, and in the final home walkthrough, we were amazed at the details she helped to capture and ensured the builder fix the punchlist item timely.
All in all, we are very happy to have Jill help us. We recommend JIll extremely highly, and would not hesitate to seek her help if we were in the market again. read less
