    #TUESDAYTIPS: FINAL WALK-THROUGH CHECKLIST

    The purpose of a final walk-through is to make sure that the property you purchased is in the condition in which you agreed to buy it.
     Your primary goal should be to make sure nothing has gone wrong since you last looked at it, and the repairs you requested have been completed. It is NEVER a good idea to pass up a final walk-through, even if you’re strapped for time. If you do, you could end up bearing the costs of any repairs that the seller otherwise would have had to take care of. Below is our walk-through checklist:

    1. Flush toilets
    2. Run water and check for leaks
    3. Make sure all debris has been removed from the home
    4. Verify repairs have been completed properly
    5. Turn every light fixture on and off
    6. Look for mold
    7. Check for condensation or fog on double-pane windows
    8. Check the washer and dryer
    9. Look for signs of pests
    10. Test all appliances
    11. Open and close windows
    12. Check garage doors
    13. Run the garbage disposal and exhaust fans
    14. Inspect ceilings, walls, and floors
    15. Open and close all doors
    16. Test the heating and air conditioning
    17. Check water pressure

    Although there is a lot to remember to examine, don’t worry! You will have your Realtor with you who will know exactly what to look for even if you forget.
