Just recently, one of our buyers was moving to Prescott Valley from out-of-state and was not going to be able to be present for a final walk-through. One of our administrators in the office were acquaintances with the buyer and agreed to represent the buyer during our walk-through. That was the first walk-through our admin had been apart of. It is an understatement to say what an eye-opening process it was for her. We take a final walk-through very seriously!
When we representing buyers in a deal, we always like to be sure a “final walk-through” is included prior to closing. This is especially true in a market where desperate and less-than-reputable sellers may try and walk out with the fixtures. While that may sound a little extreme, the final walk-through can head-off conflict before closing.
The final walk-through allows us to address common issues such as:
If the current owner is on schedule to move out
That the property is in the same condition it was when shown
That any repairs required have been completed
