Almost there!

Closing Day

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 the day of the closing. You will visit the property to verify that all is in working order, everything is the same as when you last viewed the property, that there are no extra items left behind, and that everything included in your purchase is still at the property.

Home Services and Utilities.

Here’s a link to phone numbers you’ll need to change utilities into your name as of our close date.

Be Prepared.

I am 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. I have encountered these problems before so we know how to handle them efficiently and in a stress-free manor.


Your lender will send the loan documents to title, who will prepare the final settlement statement, showing the final costs and your ‘cash to close’. You can wire or provide a cashier’s check and we will talk about this verbally due to the rampant amount of wire fraud!

Once you and the seller have signed and your funds are at title, they send to record at the County. Upon confirmation of recording, I will give you the keys to your new home!
