Closing Time for Sellers15 May Monica Breckenridge
Woohoo it's almost closing time! Make sure that you are out of the home no later than the day before the closing date. You want to make sure the house is in broom clean condition and that all debris and personal property has been removed. At closing, everyone is usually in the same room -- Seller, Buyer, Realtors, Lender, and Title Company -- signing the closing documents. The buyer has the most documents to sign because they are the ones that are getting the loan. Closings last around an hour for buyers that have a loan for the purchase and around 30 minutes or less for buyers purchasing in cash.
