Once you have negotiated a deal that both you and the buyer are satisfied with, it will be time to close. There will be a list of things to do before the actual closing day, including:
- Setting an inspection with the buyer’s home inspector
- Working with the buyer’s appraiser
- Provide documents to the buyer’s agent and lawyer
- Contact your lender to start your own mortgage payoff process
After these steps are all finished, it will be time to meet for closing day. You will need to bring a variety of forms to the closing day, and it is a good idea to also have your agent or your lawyer there with you as well to make sure all the negotiating and signing goes smoothly. Once the closing is completed and the many forms are signed, you can relax knowing you have officially sold your home!
