Final Walk Throughs for Utah Real Estate


utah home sunsetPeople purchase Utah real estate as primary residences and as investment or rental homes. Therefore, it is important for buyers to take advantage of the opportunity to perform a final walk through. You can do a final walk through a few hours or several days before your closing. Often the seller may not be living in the house at the time of the walk through, but even if they are, you can inspect the house to make sure it is in the appropriate condition.

A Utah realtor can help ensure your walk through goes smoothly by advising you about items to check when you walk through the house. Some items you should test include:

• Light switches should work properly. Additionally,a well-lit home will also enable you to inspect it more carefully.

• Dry wall should be inspected for cracks and leaks.

• Appliances and automatic garage should be working.

• Test items that utilize water including sinks and toilets. Check for any leaks or problems.

• Examine the basement for leaks.

• Make sure heating, air conditioner units and exhaust fans work.

A final walk through is very important because it is the purchaser’s last opportunity to obtain compensation for any serious identifiable problems with the property before the closing. The cost of repairs is often withheld from the purchase price if the parties choose to go through with the sale.

Our Utah realtors will suggest that you perform your walk through in an organized fashion and carefully inspect each room as well as the home’s exterior. Make a list of items that you want to check so you are do not miss any problems. If the home has a pool or hot tub, do not forget to inspect them too. Focus on the house in its present condition instead of thinking about how you are going to change the house or improve it.

A careful walk through can prevent a buyer from purchasing a major problem, thereby saving him money and aggravation. Our Utah realtors can accompany you on a walk through or help you create a list of items to check before you inspect your Utah real estate.
