Close of Escrow
If you have made it this far, it is almost time to celebrate, but there are still a few more items to check off until your property is officially sold. Check with your agent to clarify all items are in order, so you can tie up these loose ends. We will make sure everything is ready for a seamless and stress-free closing day.
Final Walk-Through Inspection
Either the day of closing, or the day before, the buyer will have the final walk-through inspection. This is to verify the property is still in the condition outlined in the Purchase Agreement, there are no new issues, and no items have been left behind from the seller.
Cancel Home Services and Utilities
After the closing, we will provide a helpful list of numbers for the cancellation of home service and utilities.
Even during this last stage, unexpected issues may arise, but do not worry. We will help you through any unforeseen problems. If the buyer’s loan does not process on time or an appliance on the property breaks, we know what to do. We have encountered these glitches before, so we know how to handle them effectively. We will get you back on track in a timely and stress-free manner.
After the final inspection, you, the buyer, and the closing agent will sign the settlement agreement, which details the financial transactions enacted through the process to certify accuracy. If you are unable to attend the closing, then you can make arrangements depending on the circumstances and notice given to all parties. If you are receiving funds, you can have them wired electronically to an account at your financial institution, or you can have the buyer issue a check at your closing. Make sure to arrange to have all property keys and other pertinent information for the buyer at the closing. Once everything is signed, you have officially sold your property.
