Now that we are thru the Inspection Responses, and have cleared the Appraisal process, it’s important to schedule the closing on your calendar and arrange to take the day off from work. Here are a few things to know about your closing date as specified on your executed contract:

  • We will send you an email that specifically documents the date of your closing, asking you if you prefer an early AM or afternoon closing.   However, the closing date could change. While we plan for your closing to be on your closing date, there are many factors which could cause it to be pushed back, such as a tight time frame for closing (anything 30 days or less) causing the mortgage company to need more time, etc.  However, for planning purposes right now, count on your closing date being the agreed upon date in the purchase agreement or counter offer.
  • The purchase agreement will dictate if the buyers agent or listing agent selects the title company.  When ever possible we want to close at a title company that we select, as we are familiar with their process and know them to be a quality company.  We will let you know the name and location of the selected title company.
  • Closing takes about an hour, to 90 Min max.
