Things To Consider Before Signing The Documents

Days before you sign the documents to finalize your purchase of the home, you should have the chance to take one last look through the property.  It's your final chance to make sure that no new issues have cropped up since the inspection and everything with the house is in order. 

You might start mentally arranging furniture and picking out new paint colors. However, this is not the best path you should take from here. This is your last chance to look for issues and work with the seller to resolve any issues you find. At least one good hour should be spent carefully inspecting the condition of the house.

So what exactly should you look for during your final walk-through? Here's a list of things to look for on your final walk-through:

  • Has the previous owner removed all debris, garbage, and unwanted items?

  • Are all the agreed-upon repair items completed?

  • Does the home still contain all furniture, appliances, and other items that are included with the purchase?

  • Are the appliances still working?

  • Do heat an air conditioning work?

  • Is the home free of any new signs of leaks, mold, or other damage?

  • Do all lights and switches still work?

  • Do toilets flush?

  • Do sinks, showers, and tub spouts run?

  • Do sink and tub drain-stoppers function?

If you wanna make things easier for you right from the start and would need someone to oversee all details of the transaction call Michael Steffen 303-981-2750 or email for more details!
