A Pre-closing Walk-thru is the last thing the buyer does before closing. The buyers, plus the real estate agents, walk through the (usually empty) house to DOUBLE CHECK everything is as expected — CONFIRM agreed upon repairs or improvements have been made and TEST to make sure all appliances work (including washer and dryer if they stay with the property).
We ALWAYS recommend doing a Pre-closing Walk-thru. It’s in all parties’ best interest to address any remaining issues BEFORE legal ownership of the property conveys at closing.
