Perform Final Walk-Thru

The goal here is to ensure no major systems have broken or become damaged since you got the home inspected. So while it may feel a bit silly running around the home flushing toilets and flipping switches, it needs to be done.

6 Things to do during a walkthrough

#1

Structure

Open and close all the doors and windows to ensure they don’t stick, squeak, or have new cracks in them. Check walls, ceilings, and floors for any new damage, spotting, or smudges.

#2

Lighting

Turn on and off every light fixture.

#3

Plumbing

Run water at every faucet and look under sinks for leaks. Flush all the toilets at least once.

#4

Heating & cooling systems

Turn on heat and wait a few minutes to see what happens. Then, turn on air conditioner.

#5

Appliances

Test all the appliances to ensure they still work (ie. stove gets hot quickly, exhaust fan is sufficiently powerful, the freezer is cold, garbage disposal easily shreds a banana peel, automatic garage door opener functions, etc).

#6

Cleanliness

Ensure all debris has been removed from in or around the home and it has been adequately swept up. It may not be perfectly tidy, but it shouldn’t require days of cleaning on your part, either, for you to move in.
