Do I Have To Do A Final Walk Through Prior To Closing?

I hear that question quite often from my buyers, and not just from my first time buyers.

Do you have to? NO. Do I recommend it? ABSOLUTELY!

All of my purchase agreements include the following verbage: FINAL WALK THROUGH PRIOR TO CLOSING: Purchaser reserves the right to walk through the property within 48 hours prior to closing.

Why should we do a walk through?In most cases the buyer and their agent haven't been in the property since the home inspection, which many times was about 3 weeks prior or more. It is in your benefit to take 5 minutes and do a quick walk through and make sure whatever is supposed to be left with the house, (ie: appliances, light fixtures) is still there. Besides making sure that nothing is missing, you want to make sure there is no visible damage to the home. YES, 99.9% of the time, everything is fine. In fact throughout my career selling real estate I've never had an issue at a final walk through. But doesn't it make sense to do one before you sign the papers on what is usually the biggest purchase you'll ever make?
