Tips for Your New Home Walkthrough

What should you expect during your pre settlement walkthrough? Learn more here.

The pre settlement walkthrough is one of the last steps in your new home construction journey. It is the last official time to inspect your home with the builders before signing the dotted line. In this meeting, you will go through the entire house and around the exterior as well. It is a chance to pick up on any imperfections with the flooring, walls, and fixtures that the builder might fix before you move in. In your journey with Ameri-Star, you are provided a number of extra opportunities before and during construction to orient yourself to your appointments and selections and they’ll be incorporated in the build during construction. Here are several tips to help you make the most of your new home walkthrough.

Have a List of Questions

Come fully prepared with all the questions you might possibly have. It’s important to take your time in this process, as it involves many details and maintenance criteria. One can write a list of all possible questions and have it on hand during the inspection. Whatever questions you may have, be bold to ask them. Your builder is there to help!

Keep Your Schedule Free

On the day of the pre settlement walkthrough, be sure to avoid having other engagements that could cut your time off or make you late to the meeting. It is a process that can take 2-3 hours, and with a freer schedule, you can devote more thought to it. The last thing you want to do is to rush the process or lose precious time to this final inspection before closing.

Give Your Full Attention

You can make the most of your new home walkthrough by paying close attention to everything the builder has to share and what you can observe of the house. The dual purpose of the walkthrough is to provide an orientation to the use and owner maintenance of the home going forward. In deciding to build a new home, you have the benefit of construction methods and details that incorporate the latest technology. During this time, the builder may give you contact information for different manufacturers and instructions on the home’s plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and other systems.

Take Pictures & Notes

Even with your full attention, you will not necessarily be able to remember every detail of the house and the information the builder gives you. Never underestimate the power of taking notes and photos that you can reference as you review the meeting in hindsight. 

At Ameri-Star Homes, you will be able to enjoy a pre settlement walkthrough of your new, customized home in central Maryland, plus a post settlement walkthrough, a one-year walkthrough, and ten-year warranty.
