Even if the house is vacant, I suggest to my buyers to have the final walk-through the day of the closing just before we head to sign the paperwork.
It is always preferable to wait until the seller has vacated (for all the reasons previously mentioned). However, depending on where you are located, that may or may not be the "norm". We are in Southern California. We always attempt to schedule the walk through after the seller has vacated but the standard CA contracts defaults to a walk through being done within 5 days of closing and doesn't require the seller to move out until the day of closing. To ensure a walk through is possible AFTER the seller has moved out, the CA contract needs to be written to include those terms.
Definately wait till they are moved out. There is no telling what might be left behind or what damage a mover might do. I liketo leave a little time between the walk thru and the closing. This give you time to resolve any issues that may arrive befroe showing up at closing.
The seller should move out (along with all of their possessions). This was you can see the true final condition of the home before you close.
