The Final "Walk Through"
some point (shortly before the date of final closing) it will be necessary for you to make a final inspection of
the house that you are purchasing--a final walk through. In all probability, you will be accompanied by your Agent,
who will help you examine the house. This is to verify that all items for which you have contracted to buy are
there, and items that you have not contracted to buy have been removed. For example, you do not want to arrive
at your new house after closing to find that the beautiful chandelier in the dining room has somehow been replaced
by a cheap overhead fixture, or that the draperies and window treatments that were specifically referenced in the
contract have been packed and moved away. Additionally, you do not want to move in to find that numerous items
have been left by the sellers because they did not want to move them or take them to the dump. When you do your
walk through, pay particular attention to attics, crawl spaces or basements, and garages. If the sellers have not
moved yet, you still may get a clear picture that there are certain items (since they may not be boxed or appear
to be ready to move) that they have no intention of taking with them. Bring this to the attention of your Agent
to avoid the hassles that can surface on moving day.
