The big day is almost here! If your closing date is coming up soon, your Realtor has probably scheduled a type of showing called the “final walkthrough”. The final walkthrough typically occurs within 48 hours of closing and serves as the time for buyers and their agent to give the property a final inspection. It will probably be your last time inside your new home before it officially becomes yours.
If issues do come up during your walkthrough, don’t panic. Discuss any problems with your Realtor. He or she can advise on whether conditions still need met and/or if the purchase contract will need amended. It is usually not necessary to delay closing for unexpected mishaps. Most buyers and sellers prefer to work things out together and proceed on schedule. Larger issues may result in an extended closing date, though this is unlikely. The final walkthrough is a time during the home purchase/negotiation process when it certainly benefits you to have a Realtor on your side. The final push before closing can be an emotional time for a buyer, and understandably so! A seasoned real estate professional knows how to proceed with grace and logic and is your best guide from the offer to the closing table.
