Final Walkthrough Tips


Before you get to the closing table, the final walkthrough is an important step in the home buying process that give the buyer one last opportunity to view the home before officially buying it.  Chances are it has been a few weeks since you were last in the home and a final walkthrough tends to occur within 72 hours of the closing giving buyers a chance to insure nothing has changed in the condition of the home.   We cover what a final walkthrough is (a chance to insure any agreed upon repairs have been completed) and what it isn’t (a time to bring contractors or family members with you) and some common issues that can arise during the walkthrough.

Home Inspections Explained


Private home inspections are often a part of the process of buying a home.   Guest Bob Bowling from Buyers Protection Group Inspections shares that the number one goal of a home inspection is education; to educate buyers about the condition of the home they are about to buy.   From a buyers perspective we share what is and is not covered during a home inspection, what you should look for when searching for an inspector and about how much an inspection costs.  For sellers, we talk about what you can do to help the inspection go smoothly, what information is helpful for the inspector to have and the #1 thing sellers should do before an inspector comes out (hint: in involves your furnace).
