It's the Final Walk-through

So today is our final walk through.  Man time has gone by really quick.  Before you know it we will be moving boxes, unpacking and trying to make our house a home.  Now is the time for any last minute fixes/changes.  Here is a good article on doing final walk-through  With our home, we've been keeping up with the progress from day one, and aren't expecting any big changes from the last time we saw it.  But there is still a possibility for there to be issues.  Here is the cliff notes version:

"Here is a list of items to check on a final walk-through:

    • Turn on and off every light fixture
    • Run water & look under sinks for leaks
    • Test all appliances
    • Check garage door openers
    • Open and close all doors
    • Flush toilets
    • Inspect ceilings, wall and floors
    • Run garbage disposal and exhaust fans
    • Test heating and air conditioning
    • Open and close windows
    • Make sure all debris is removed from the home"
Now all I have to do is figure out how not to hum "Europe"'s "The Final Countdown" while my wife rolls her eyes.


  1. I dare you to hum that during the walk through. See if the PM catches on! Haha! ~ The Wife.

  2. Great list! I will save this for later!

  3. Congratulations on the final walk through! Did everything go okay with it then?

  4. The final walk through went great. Mostly cosmetics issues with the paint etc. There was one issue with the outside lights, but nothing major. We are getting ready to close tomorrow.

    1. The PM probably didn't catch on... :)
