You have come this far and are now in the home stretch but do not forget to tie up those loose ends:
Final Walk-Through Inspection.
The final inspection will take place the day before the closing or in some cases, the day of closing. You will visit the property to inspect and verify that everything is in working order, everything is the same as when you viewed the property and that there are no extra items left behind. If there is anything included in the purchase ensure that it is still at the property.
Home Services and Utilities.
You will want to have the utilities turned on in your name on the day of closing or right after. We will provide a list of providers for the activation of home services and utilities.
If any unforeseen issue should pop up, we are ready to assist you. Something happens at the property- no need to worry. We have experienced these problems before and know how to handle them efficiently and stress-free.
The Title Company will provide all parties involved with a settlement statement; this summarizes and details the financial transactions. You, the Seller and the Title Company will sign this statement certifying that it is accurate. If financing the property, your lender will require you to sign a document, usually a promissory note, as evidence that you are personally responsible for repaying the loan. At closing, you will be required to pay all fees and closing costs in the form of “guaranteed funds” such as a cashier’s check. Your agent or escrow officer will notify you of the exact amount prior to closing. The seller will arrange to have the property keys and other important information for you at the closing.
