On The Day of Closing
It’s important that all conditions have been met and the funds are ready to be disbursed prior to the closing date so there are no unexpected surprises when it comes to the closing date. We will guide you through every step of the process so that you can expect a worry-free, smooth closing.
Final Walk-Through Inspection
More of a formality than anything else, the final inspection takes place the day before, or the day of the closing. The buyer visits the property to verify that all is in working order, everything is the same as when the buyer last viewed the property and that there are no extra items left behind.
Cancel Home Services and Utilities
Prior to your closing, with your assistance, we will provide a list for your consideration to make sure you are prepared in advance of your closing that all service providers and utilities have been terminated satisfactorily.
Final Preparations for Closing
We are ready to assist you should an unforeseen glitch, even at this last stage. If something at the property breaks down or the buyers’ loan does not pull through on time, there is no need to worry. We have encountered these problems before, so we know how to handle them efficiently and in a stress-free manner.
The closing agent will furnish all parties involved with a settlement statement, which summarizes and details the financial transactions enacted in the process. The buyer(s) will sign this statement and then you will sign as well as the closing agent, certifying its accuracy. If you are unable to attend the scheduled closing, then arrangements can be made depending on the circumstances and the notice that we receive. 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 at the closing. As the seller, you should arrange to have all property keys and any other important information for the buyer(s) at the closing, so that they may receive these items on the day of closing.
