YOU are coming down the home stretch now!
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 everything is in working order, that 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 on site at the property.
We are 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. We have encountered these problems before so we know how to handle them efficiently and in a stress-free manner.
The closing agent will furnish all parties involved with a settlement statement, which summarizes and details the financial transactions enacted in the process. You and the seller(s) will sign this statement, as well as the closing agent, certifying its accuracy. If you are obtaining financing, you will have to sign all pertinent documentation required by the lending institution. If you are bringing funds to the transaction, you can elect to either have the funds wired electronically into the closing agent’s escrow account, or bring a certified bank check to the closing in the amount specified on the settlement statement. The seller will arrange to have all property keys and any other important information available for you either in your new home or at the closing.
You did it. You just closed on your new home. Now it’s time to pull that moving truck into the driveway and go to work. It’s all going to be worth it, in a week or so!
