Daily Real Estate News  |  April 14, 2006  |   Tips for Final Walk-Throughs A house is a major purchase for almost anyone. Taking the time to study the property one last time before closing is a smart thing to do. Here are a few tips from experienced real estate professionals for spotting potential last-minute problems.
  • Walk-through less than 24 hours before the closing:. You don't want too much time to lapse between the walk-through and the closing.
  • Take your time: Don't feel rushed or pressured by the seller.
  • Take the walk-through in daylight hours.
  • Bring the home inspector’s report. Or better yet, bring the home inspector.
  • Examine the now-empty garage, basement, crawl spaces and attic. When they are occupied, these areas are hard to examine.
  • Take photos: Document any damage you see in the home.
