It's the Final Walk-through
Double check to ensure anything on your negotiated repair checklist is complete as specified in the contract.
- Address any damage that was not-visible during or may have occurred after the inspection period.
- The home must be relatively clean. A higher level of cleaning can be negotiated before the walk-through, but the default is the home must be "broom swept".
Condition of the Home
Items That Convey
Items that are included in the sale of the home are present and working as the were at the time of inspection.

Shell & Tell
- Robert in Lakewood Ranch wants to know how much should I expect to put down as a down payment or deposit?
It depends on the sale, but enough of a down payment that the seller knows you are a serious buyer. Between 1% and 5% is common, but despited popular belief 20% is not required. Your deposit can also vary based on the type of loan you qualify for, so please see a mortgage lending professional for the best advice for your specific situation.
- Lisa in Gulf Gate asked can I buy a new home and sell my current home at the same time?
Yes! This happens frequently, but the timing can be tricky. Simultaneous closings can be very challenging so the best way to do this is to allow a day or two or so of gap time between the sale of your current home and purchase of a new home to avoid unpleasant surprises at the time of the closings. Also having both transactions handled by the same title company can aid in the proper timing of both closings happening at the same time.
