It’s common practice, with transactions involving Boise Idaho homes, for buyers to complete a walk-through prior to closing.
With Boise Idaho homes, the purpose of a buyer’s walk-through is to confirm that the property is in the same condition as was when the buyer’s offer was accepted.
If the purchase and sale agreement required the seller to make repairs, or improvements, to the property, those repairs and improvements should be completed prior to the walk-thru.
The walk-thru is not intended to identify additional repairs or improvements requested by the buyer.
The Idaho RE-21 Purchase and Sale Agreement includes provisions to specify when a buyer will complete their walk-through.
It’s best to do a buyer’s walk-through near the closing date to ensure that the property is in the expected condition at closing.
Window coverings are often a common issue during walk-throughs.
Our Idaho RE-21 Purchase and Sale Agreement clearly states that window coverings are included with the sale unless specifically excluded in the listing agreement.
I’ve personally seen sellers remove all window coverings and drapery rods before closing.
When you do your walk-thru, confirm that all window coverings specified in the transaction remain in the property.
If your purchase offer included specific items to be included in your transaction, the walk-through is your opportunity to confirm that those items remain with the property.
Confirm Repairs Completed
Buyers often negotiate repairs to be completed to correct items found during a home inspection.
The walk-through provides an opportunity for the buyer to confirm that those repairs have been completed.
If those repairs were to be completed by someone other than the seller, you should get paid invoices for your own records and for title insurance confirmations.
