The last step to buying your home is the closing day. Your agent will help walk you through the following processes to ensure your needs are met.
If you have come this far, then this means that it is almost time for a congratulations, 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 a day before or on the closing day. This final walkthrough is to ensure that the property is left in the manor that was agreed upon in the contract such as appliances, repairs, and that no damage has happened to the place.
Home Services and Utilities
We will provide a list of useful numbers for the activation of home services and utilities after the closing occurs.
We are ready to assist you should an unforeseen glitch pop up, even at this last stage. Something at the property breaks down, or some other minor detail – no need to worry. We have encountered these problems before so we know how to handle them efficiently and in a stress-free manor.
The closing agent will furnish all parties involved with a settlement statement, which summarizes and details the financial transactions enacted in the process. In order to certify its accuracy, both the buyers, sellers, and closing attorney will sign the settlement statement. If you are obtaining financing, you will have to sign all pertinent documentation required by the lending institution. If you cannot make the schedule closing date, speak to your agent and accommodations can be made.
If you are bringing funds to the transaction, you can elect to either have the funds wired electronically into the closing agent’s escrow account, or bring a certified bank check to the closing in the amount specified on the settlement statement. The seller should arrange to have all property keys and any other important information for you at the closing so that you may receive these items at this time.
