Are you getting ready to move into your new home? Whether you're a first-time homebuyer or an experienced pro, it's important to do a final walkthrough before you take possession of the property. This will help ensure that everything is in order and that there are no surprises waiting for you when you move in. In this blog post, we'll walk you through the steps of conducting a final walkthrough. We'll also provide some tips on what to look for during your inspection. Let's get started!
1. Schedule a final walkthrough with your real estate agent. This should be done after all repairs have been made and the home is ready for move-in.
2. Bring a checklist with you to the walkthrough. This will help you keep track of everything that needs to be inspected.
3. Check the condition of the home's exterior. Make sure that the gutters, downspouts, and windows are in good condition. Also, take a look at the condition of the landscaping and any decks or patios that are included with the property.
4. Once you're inside, turn on all the lights and check for any signs of water damage or mold. Inspect the floors for any damage.
5. Check the condition of the appliances. Make sure that the stove, oven, dishwasher, and other appliances are in good working order.
6. Take a look at the home's plumbing and electrical systems. Make sure that all outlets are working and that there are no signs of water damage.
7. Inspect the home's windows and doors. Make sure that they're in good condition and that all locks are working properly.
8. Check the condition of the walls, ceilings, and floors. Look for any cracks or damage.
9. Once you've completed your inspection, make a list of any repairs or maintenance items that need to be addressed. This will help you get started on the right foot in your new home.
