You've selected the house you want, you've started the paperwork and you're now in the final few days before you are going to sign off on the purchase. This is when you will be doing a final walk-through.
For that final walkthrough, you should have a final walkthrough checklist of things you want to look at, touch, turn on/off and generally check before you complete the purchase. Here are many of the items often checked on a final walkthrough checklist. Water - Plumbing problems can be a nightmare, so it's best to make sure you don't start your time in your new house with any. Turn on all the faucets and flush the toilets. Look around under the sinks and make sure the pipes are working well and not leaking. Light - Turn on and off all the lights in the house and make sure they work. You may want to check a few days in advance to make sure they have turned power on to the home. Appliances - You don't want broken appliances, so turn things on and make sure they work before you sign off on them. This should include not only kitchen appliances but also the air conditioning, heat, garbage disposal and any other items. Doors and Windows - Open and close all the doors and windows to make sure they work properly. Don't forget the garage door. If it's electric make sure the opener works. Floors, Ceilings and Walls - Look closely at the walls, ceilings and floors for cracks, or other damage that you will have to repair if you are to move in to the home. You want to make sure it's in good condition and ready for you to move in.
