How a Home Inspector Could Make a Final Walk-Through a Success (part 1 of 2)


Days or hours before you finally close a deal to sell your house, you need to facilitate a final walk-through. You should always remember that this is not a final home inspection. A final walk-through may not require the presence of a home inspector. But for sure, the professional could make the event a stunning success.

The main goal of a final walk-through is always to make the home sale succeed. It is assumed that before this stage, the home is already prepared. Necessary and required repairs should already have been completed and maintenance should already be set. Thus, it is important that long before the final walk-through, you should have already completed a home inspection and abided recommended repairs and maintenance.

There are things that are always checked by homebuyers every final walk-through. As investors, they would logically aim to make sure their investment would be a good and sound one. As always, no one would want to buy a defective and damaged house. Expect the homebuyers to: turn on and then off light fixtures; test appliances; run water in faucets and check under sinks for possible leaks.

They would also look at garage door openers; flush toilets; look at ceilings, floors, and walls; close and open all doors; test air conditioning and heating system; close and open all windows; run exhaust fans; and look for any debris. That is why you should always make sure that all fixtures and appliances found in the house are all operational and in good condition. The home inspector could definitely help make it all possible.
