It’s pretty much standard practice for buyers and their agent to do a “walk-through” of the home they’re buying prior to closing.
One reason for a walk-through is to confirm that the property is in the same condition as when the buyer’s offer was accepted.
Another reason is to confirm that the seller is leaving all items that were agreed upon at the time of sale.
This is rarely an issue, but I recently dealt with that exact situation where a seller removed drapery rods and window coverings that were specified as “included” in both the listing and the purchase and sale agreement.
Finally, the walk-through is a good time for the seller to explain the operation of the various systems of the property, such as sprinklers, HVAC, and other items.
