Home buyers can sometimes loose focus when performing a walk-through of a property that they’ve determined they want to buy. A well-thought-out checklist is the key to an efficient walk-through. Include a list of questions developed and discussed a few days prior. Take measurements of every room to determine how furnishings will fit. Make a list of everything you may need to buy or conversely anything you want the seller to include in the purchase. Perform an exterior walk-around, to include a stroll about the neighborhood and an assessment of available parking.
- The walk-through is the most important and time-consuming part of house-buying. It is when you move from thinking about buying a house in a certain area and price range to making up your mind to buy a specific, individual home or not.
- The only way to remember all the questions you have about the house and all the details you want to see is to have a checklist.
- Homes for sale are staged to look spacious and uncluttered, but the only way you can tell if your furniture will fit is to measure.
