If you’ve come this far, then this means only one thing: Congratulations, You’ve successfully sold your home! Don’t forget to tie up these loose ends:
Final Walk-Through Inspection: More of a formality than anything else, the final inspection takes place a few days before the transaction is closed. The buyer visits your Tacoma, Lakewood or Pierce County property to verify that the home is in the same condition as it was during the inspection.
Cancel Home Services and Utilities:Be sure to contact your utility companies to close out your accounts or transfer services to your new home.
Be Prepared: I am ready to assist you should an unforeseen glitch pop up, even at this last stage. Something at the house breaks down, the buyers’ loan doesn’t pull through on time – no need to worry. I’ve encountered these problems before and know how to handle these problems efficiently.
Close of Escrow: The Escrow Company furnishes the principals with a closing statement, which summarizes all the financial transactions enacted in the process. A few days before the set closing date, you’ll sign the final documents for the title company. They’ll record the transaction for you and the buyer at the Pierce County Tax Assessor’s Office. You’ll then receive your proceeds, and the buyer will become the new owner.
Keys: I will arrange the delivery of your keys to your buyer once the deed has been recorded at the Pierce County Tax Assessor’s Office.
It’s time to move!
