Close of Escrow

Closing Day

If you have come this far, 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 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.

We will provide a list of useful numbers for the termination of home services and utilities after the closing occurs.

Be Prepared.

We are ready to assist you should an unforeseen glitch pop up, even at this final stage. If something at the property is not as it was during the last inspection, or if the buyer’s loan is not timely cleared to close, our agents are equipped to address these issues in an efficient and stress-free manner.

Closing.

The closing agent will furnish all parties with a settlement statement, which summarizes and details the transaction. If you are unable to attend the scheduled closing, arrangements typically can be made so that you are provided any documents requiring your signature, in advance of the buyer’s scheduled closing. All closing funds will be disbursed at the time of closing. In the event you are to bring money for settlement, those funds should be received by the closing agent prior to the buyer’s scheduled closing. The keys to the property should be made available for the buyer not later than the buyer’s scheduled closing.
