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.

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
