Your final walk through is your last home or property buying task before you officially become the owner. There are a couple of big reasons to take it very seriously. This could save you a ton of money and headaches.
No matter how skilled each crew is, how diligent the builder, or how thorough the interim inspections are, anything with so many components made by hand by human beings will have items that need attention at the end. That’s why your “final walkthrough” is so important. Typically scheduled after all construction is complete — before you close and take ownership of your home or property — this inspection is an important opportunity.
As a buyer, you and your builder will typically walk together and mark items needing attention. To deliver as problem-free a building as possible, some builders perform their own final inspection before the customer walkthrough, so blemishes, scratches and dents can be repaired before the buyer ever lays eyes on them, but sometimes that just not enough and a outside 3rd party inspection is the only real way to make sure nothing is over looked.
