Getting to Closing
Closing is often one of the more intimidating parts of this process. There are a lot of important steps that you’ll need to do to make sure things go smoothly when you’re closing on the deal.
First, you’ll need to verify that the potential buyer is qualified with a trusted lender and confirm that the earnest money is received.
Your buyer will need to set up inspections, and it’s important to verify that the appointments are set up to align with the closing schedule.
After the inspection, it’s likely that the buyer will come back with items on the home that they want fixed before they will agree to purchase it. You’ll need to negotiate inspection items to make sure you can get money out of the deal still and that you don’t overspend.
If there are a lot of repairs that will need to be done, it’s best to hire a contractor to get them done quickly so they’re done properly.
The last two things to check before closing are that the buyer’s loan is moving along on schedule and that the buyer’s lender has scheduled an appraisal for the home. Once these things are done, then it’s time to arrange a meeting time to close on the house and start moving out!
