How to Prepare for a Final Walkthrough

While we all know the importance of a final walkthrough, it can be easy to forget or overlook things during your inspection, especially your future lifestyle. In this post, Colorado Professionals Title, LLC has some ways to prepare yourself for the final walkthrough of not just your potential new home, but new lifestyle.

Don’t be afraid to inspect.

This can be a difficult one for some buyers, especially if there are still people living in the property at the time. While we want to be respectful, it’s important to remember that the very purpose of your inspection is to inspect. Purchasing a home is a big decision and a large investment, and this is your time to make sure you know what you are purchasing. While it can be difficult to ask, seeing important parts of the property such as areas behind curtains, under rugs and inside cupboards is extremely important as these spaces can hide damage or repair work that may not be disclosed.

Look around, and not just the house.

Take a stroll around the yard, the outside of the house, the local parks and neighborhood and really start to think about whether you can see yourself living there. Imagine any children you may have and where opportunities for them to play might be in close proximity to your home? Is there a local coffee shop in walking distance that you can see you and your friends enjoying on Sunday mornings? These are the types of things that can make your neighborhood feel like your home.

Once you are confident that you have found the perfect space for you, be mindful to complete all necessary due diligence before signing on the dotted line. A title search can help you to discover any unpaid financial claims on the property, and is likely required by your lender to obtain title insurance in Highlands Ranch, Colorado.
