Walk-Through Checklist

"Don't worry about the missing furnace, I'm sure the sellers will bring it back after closing."

The final walk-through is customary when buying a house, but what should you be looking for?

The walk-through should be done shortly before closing, but you need to be ready to postpone the closing if there is something amiss.  Once you sign the final papers, then the house is yours and any verbal promises are worth the paper they are written on.
