As a listing broker/sales person, is it important to have the buyer do their pre-closing walk through? Our state Realtor Purchase Agreement form indicates in paragraph 18 that the buyer has the right to do a walk-through within 2 days prior to closing. As a listing broker, do you care whether or not this is done? Isn't it enough that the buyer closes? My perspective as a qualifying broker is that we have a responsibility to our seller to assure that all of the details of the purchase agreement have been addressed and that our seller is protected. Should the buyer not do the walk-through, it is possible that s/he could find a problem after closing that is significant enough to bring back to the table. If that problem could have been discovered during the walk-through but the buyer did not do the walk-though, I believe that we would have done a disservice to our seller. We always require that our brokers have a signed walk-through inspection (RANM form 5110) to complete the closing package for our file.
