YOU are coming down the home stretch now!
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.

Your real estate agent will schedule your appointment to close with the title company. When the date/time arrives, you will go to the Title Company or if living out of state, you can close remotely. The closing agent will furnish all parties involved with a settlement statement, which summarizes and details the financial transactions enacted in the process. After reviewing this settlement statement for accuracy, all parties will sign. If you are receiving funds from the transaction, you can elect to either have the funds wired electronically to an account at your financial institution, or have a check issued to you at the closing. The seller should arrange to have all property keys and any other important information for the new purchaser at the closing, so that the purchaser may receive these items at this time.
You made it, you did it! You sold your home, you’ve received your funds and now you can move on to your relocation.
