Get To Closing Day
Once we've successfully marketed, negotiated an offer on your home and gotten through the repairs we're just about ready to celebrate, but not yet. Do not forget to tie up these loose ends!
Cancel Home Services and Utilities.
I will provide a list of useful numbers for the termination of home services and utilities after the closing occurs.
I am ready to assist you should an unforeseen glitch pops up, even at this last stage. If something at the property breaks down or the buyer's loan does not pull through on time, there is no need to worry. I have encountered these problems before so I know how to handle them efficiently and in a stress-free manner.
The Final Walk-Through Inspection.
It's more of a formality than anything else but the final inspection usually takes place the day before or the day of the closing. The buyer visits the property to verify that all is in working order and that the seller has completed any agreed upon repairs. The buyer will also check to make sure everything is the same as when the buyer last viewed the property and that there are no extra items left behind.
It's Closing Day!
The closing attorney will furnish all parties involved with a settlement statement, which summarizes and details the financial aspect of the transaction. The buyer(s) will sign this statement and then you will sign as well as the closing attorney, certifying its accuracy. If you are unable to attend the scheduled closing, arrangements can be made to get the sellers documents signed ahead of time. It will be important to give the attorney enough notice so he/she can prepare the lien waver and deed in advance of the closing. If you are receiving funds from the transaction, you can elect to either have the funds wired electronically to an account at your financial institution or have a check issued to you when the deed is recorded after the closing. The seller should arrange to have all property keys and any other important information for the new purchaser at the closing.
