Do you have to do a final walk through? What if you’re out of the area? The simple answer is yes. You should always do a final walk through. This way you can confirm that the house is in the same state as it was when you made the offer and all the features that are supposed to stay, have stayed. If you are out of the area and cannot physically be there. Your realtor can most likely do a video tour with you so you can both confirm the state of the home. But if you can be there, that is best!
