Once you’ve found the perfect new home for you, you may think you’ve made enough visits before you’re handed the keys. But most first time home buying tips suggest that you never skip the final walk through before you sign the contract on your new house. A beautifully staged home can help detract from some flaws that might have gone unnoticed beforehand. If furniture or rugs have been removed, be sure to check the walls and floors thoroughly to ensure they’re in great shape. If the home was occupied by renters, it’s especially important to make sure that no damage was done or items are missing that should have been included with your purchase. As much as you may love your potential new home, be sure you’re present to give it one final check with an attention for detail.
