There are many inspections throughout the escrow process. The final walk through before closing is the final inspection of your home before the transaction officially closes and the home becomes yours. This is your last chance to make sure that everything has been left as agreed.
Do you really need to go it? Yes, you should make every effort to attend the final walk through with your agent. You can elect to waive the walk through, but it is advised that you go to it.
Here are just a few of the things that you will verify with your real estate agent:
- That all agreed upon appliances and fixtures have stayed.
- That the repair requests you had agreed upon with the seller, have been completed.
- That nothing has been broken or damaged since the last inspection.
In general, you should verify that everything is the way that it was when you decided to buy the home.
