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.

I have had the pleasure of partnering with Jill Wente on several real estate transactions. Her attention to detail and knowledge of the real estate industry are top notch! She is honest, straight forward, organized, and completely in tune with each of her transactions. She asks questions and truly listens to the information given to her and applies it in her future transactions. She is wonderful to work with and proves in each transaction that her top priority is that her clients are given the best customer service and are comfortable with each step of the process. She works proactively rather than reactively, and prepares herself for any questions her clients may have during the process, and does so before the question arises. Her clients are lucky to have her on their side! I look forward to any and all opportunities I have to partner with Jill in the future. read less
