🏡Today's Random Real Estate 2️⃣cents Tuesday is about the final walk-through and why it is important. A final walk-through is an inspection performed anywhere from a few hours to a few days before settlement of the transaction. The final walk-through is NOT your client’s opportunity to add to their inspection repairs, it is the time to confirm the home’s repairs are finalized and no new damage has occurred. Its primary purpose is to make certain that the property is in the condition agreed upon when the offer became a contract.
When you walk through the house, do the following:
✅ Look at requested repairs
✅ Items that convey if requested
✅. Look for new damage by:
🔎 Turning on & off every light fixture
🔎 Running water & checking for leaks
🔎 Testing all appliances
🔎 Flushing toilets
🔎 Inspecting ceilings, walls & floors
🔎 Running disposal & exhaust fans
🔎 Testing heating & AC
🔎 Opening & closing windows
🔎 Making sure debris is removed
🔎 Checking garage door openers
🔎 Opening & closing all doors
