Preliminary Closing Documents. We will obtian preliminary copies of the settlement statements prioer to closing such that you will have ample time to review them and have any necessary changes and/or corrections made prior to the actual closing. Typically this will occur 1-3 days before closing.
Closing Day. If you have come this far, this means it is almost time for congratulations..... Yet, let's not forget to tie up the remaining loose ends.
What to Bring to Closing with You. Make sure you and all parties signing the contract bring their drivers license or picture i.d. to closing. Also make sure you bring any keys and garage remotes with you which have not already been left in the designated place within the property. Be sure to also remember mail box keys and keys to any clubhouses, pool, or other common ammenities. Don't forget storage shed keys.
Final Walk-Through Inspection. More of a formality than anything else, the final inspection takes place either the day before, or the day of closing. The buyer(s) visit the property with their buyer's agent to verify that all is in working order, everything is the same as when the buyer last viewed te property, and that there are no extra items left behind.
Cancel Home Servies and Utilities. We will provide a list of useful phone numbers for the termination of home servies and utilities after the closing occurs.
Be Prepared. We are ready to assist you should you see an unexpected glitch pop up, even at this last stage. If something at the property breaks down or the buyer's loan does not pull through on time, there is no need to worry. We have encountered these problems before so we know how to handle them in the most efficient and timely manner possible.
Closing. The closing agent will furnish all parties involved with a settlement statement, which summaries and details the financial transactions enacted in the process. The buyer(s) will sign their purchaser's settlement statement and you will sign your seller's settlement statement. If buyers are obtaining a loan, both parties will also be required to sign the HUD Settlement Statement. There will be a number of other documents which you will sign including but not limited to: agreement for taxes, utility agreement, bill of sale, real property transfer declaration and final affidavits. (Please see the Glossary of Real Estate Terms for further explanation of each.)
