THE CLOSING

The closing is an important day for you as a home seller. You will transfer the property to the buyer, fully pay off any mortgages, and receive your sales proceeds.

 

If you agreed to make any repairs to the property or take any other action to improve it, or to take action to clear title to the property (such as removing a shed encroaching onto a neighbor’s property), all of these agreed-upon endeavors should be completed by the closing as well. The exception would be if you and the buyer made a separate contract for the work to be completed at a later date. The buyer will inspect the property prior to closing to make sure these items have been taken care of

 

 

Closing is the final step of the process, and the closing table is where the ownership of your home will transfer to the new owner.

This is what you’ll need to bring to closing:

  1. Copies of all of the keys to the house

  2. Garage door openers

  3. Codes for keyless entry to the house or alarm system

  4. Each seller needs a government issued photo I.D., such as a driver’s license

 

Where to Go

The location of the closing office is on the contract, go to that office during your pre-scheduled time.

 

The Process

 A closing agent from the title company will guide you through the closing process. Closing on a home requires a lot of signatures on many legal documents, by both the buyers and the sellers.

The bottom line is that the paperwork you sign ultimately transfers ownership of the home. After everything is signed and certified, or when cashier’s checks are collected, the closing agent makes copies of all of the documents that pertain to you.

 

The seller then hands over the keys, garage door openers, and any other access information to the buyer, and the deal is done. The seller walks away with a check for the profit of the home sale and everyone walks away from the closing table with what they came to receive. Mission accomplished!

 

CONGRATULATION!!!YOU SOLD YOUR HOME!!!!
