If you have come this far, this means that it is almost time for a celebration, but not yet. Do not forget to tie up these loose ends:
Final Walk-Through Inspection.
More of a formality than anything else, the final inspection takes place up to 72 hours prior, 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.
I will provide a list of useful numbers for the termination of home services and utilities prior to the closing.
I Will Be Prepared.
I am ready to assist you should an unforeseen glitch pop up, or any issue at all, comes up even at this late stage. I have encountered these problems before so I know how to handle them efficiently and in a stress-free manner.
The title company 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 I 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. The seller should arrange to have all property keys and any other important information for the new purchaser at the closing, so that the purchaser may receive these items at this time.
