Barrie Home Buyrs InformationEvery home buyer should take a final walk-through of their soon-to-be new Barrie property before signing the closing papers. This is done to ensure that there is no damage to the property and that everything that is supposed to be included is in place and has not been removed.

This gives the home buyer one last chance to make sure that everything is intact. This is your time to verify that everything is a go at your end and nothing looks different. At this point, if you do see anything that looks different it is your opportunity to point it out and ask questions. Don’t panic if you do notice something awry – usually there is a very simple explanation for it that makes total sense.

Take a careful walk around the exterior of the house and make sure that the windows, gutters and foundation all look fine. Walk around the interior as well and test the doors, toilets, lights and anything else in the house that you can see. Don’t forget to test a garage door or garage door opener as you are doing your walk around.

This is also your chance to meet your house before you own it. You can take this opportunity to give it some kind of blessing if you are religious or give it some kind of positive energy for your future ownership.

This is really an exciting time for you. This is your last time walking into the house as a guest and the next time you enter the home it will be as the new owner. Enjoy this final walk around and take in the significance of being in the home this one last time as the potential buyer. Soon it will be your new home.

Once you have determined that everything is in place as it should be and in proper working order you can go ahead and sign all of the closing papers. This final walk-through gives you the certainty you need to put pen to paper and own this new home. It also gives you clarity and the peace of mind of knowing that you have made the right decision and feel good about acquiring your new acquisition.
