Home Buying Tips – Final Walkthrough
Home Buying Tips! A very important step in the home purchasing process, is the verification of property condition, or more commonly known as the final walk-through. There are 3 crucial steps to do in the final walk-through. First of which is to verify that the repairs that were negotiated, were completed by the seller and done to the satisfaction of the buyer. For this, it is important to bring with you the home inspection report and the list of the items that were requested to be repaired. That way you can be thorough and verify that everything requested was addressed. The 2nd step is to verify that the property is in relatively the same condition as when the purchase contract was accepted. Often, people hire a moving company and sometimes damage occurs when moving the contents of a house. It is important to inspect the condition of the drywall and flooring to ensure no damage occurred. Now, the 3rd step, and probably most important thing to do in the final walk-through, I will ask that you get in touch with me by e-mail at Craig@GreenMeansGrow.com or give me a quick call at 619-859-4954 and I will be happy to share this crucial step with you. You want to be sure not to close escrow until you have done this one final thing. I look forward to hearing from you.
