A Comprehensive Checklist for That Final Walk-Through

Whenever you’re buying a home, you’ve to make sure that the property is in the same condition as you last saw it and this is exactly where the importance of a final walk-through comes in. This step also lets you verify whether or not the improvements or repairs have been carried out by the seller if agreed. Whether you’re buying the home from a reputable “we buy houses in NJ” company or from a company that comes with the tagline “sell my house fast NJ”, you need to keep track of lots of things. Therefore, it’s greatly beneficial to maintain a checklist during a final walk-through.

Take a look at this comprehensive checklist we’ve created to ensure you never miss a thing.

Double-Check All Repair

It’s essential to take a thorough look at all final repairs before anything else. Make sure all repairs negotiated by the seller have been fully completed and that the receipts and warranties for those works are there. If anything goes wrong, you’ll be able to follow up with the company or person who did the job.

Inspect the Bathrooms

If you became overwhelmed by the outstanding features of the home and forgot to check the bathrooms in your earlier visits, this is your final chance to do so. Make sure the bathrooms are fully functioning and are free from water damage, mold, etc. Check the faucets and make sure they’ve hot water and don’t leak when you turn them off. Also, check to toilets out to ensure they aren’t running.

Make Sure Items Are There According To the Purchase Agreement

Your purchase agreement essentially mentions what items are included in the sale and what aren’t. If possible, bring the agreement along or a list of the items so you can check them out. Make sure that items that were to stay don’t go missing. Remember, items such as built-in furniture, light fixtures, doorknobs, etc usually stay unless otherwise stated in the contract.

Test the Appliances

Check all the appliances to make sure they’re in full working condition. Focus on things like ovens, dishwasher, washer and dryer, etc. Do this with the heating and air conditioning as well.

Make Sure the House Is In Broom Clean Condition

The house has to be vacuumed, swept, and free of additional stuff or debris after the seller moved out. Thoroughly check cabinets, closets, basements, garages, etc to make sure you aren’t receiving any unwanted thing from the seller. If you observe any such thing, contact the seller to have them removed.

Final Words

Once you’re done checking the interior of the house, be sure to observe the outside too. If the landscaping seems to be as agreed by the seller, check out systems like gates, irrigation systems, etc. If you find anything has gone wrong, just let the seller know about it and ask him/her seller decently to fix it. Usually, sellers want to make the closing a smooth process so just flagging the issue should help you get the job done.

Can't say enough about Ken and his team. This was the most seamless sale I made. I didn't have to deal with all the... nonsense that comes with selling your home. They bought my house as is, I didn't have to declutter and pay a broker commission. All in all great experience, will do business again.read more

Selling my property too Ken was the best thing I did. Although I was skeptical at first I soon found out how... professional he was. Even though my closing contract was not standard because of the pendemic situation. He followed through on time with all the contract terms as promised. Thank you Ken for your professionalism.Alfredo Gread more

Ken was referred to us by someone who had sold their home thru Ken last year. From the first meeting to the last... transaction, Ken and his team were professional, efficient, easy to work with, and above all.... caring. Each seller's situation is different, and Ken truly understands that. We were treated with respect each time.Since we were in a time crunch situation, selling our home with a cash offer from Ken was the best decision we could have made. We were perfectly okay with getting slightly less money for our home as compared to selling it via an agent. But if you consider the money saved on agent commissions (both buyers and sellers), closing costs, repair costs, attorney fees, and most important of all... time and headache, you can't beat the option to sell your home with a guaranteed cash offer from a reputable buyer like Ken.My wife and I were very pleased with our experience with Ken. If you are in the market to sell your home fast for a cash offer, I highly recommend giving Ken a call!Best of luck!Vishread more

Amazing experience! Ken was upfront, quick and got the deal done in no time. Having done a number of real estate... transactions this was by far the easiest and smoothest. I would unconditionally recommend him to anyone looking for an easy, quick and fair transaction.read more

Ken is a very professional individual from start to finish. As promised, he gave me a fair deal on my one of my... properties that was in rough shape. He was knowledgeable and responsive to my requests and as promised we didn't need to waste time with inspections and appraisals and we closed quickly. He made it painless as possible by having his crew handle the clean up. This was truly a quick and easy process but a professional individual. Thanks Ken!read more
