Step 21 to Selling Your Home: Schedule the Closing Date on your Calendar
Now that the A/I period has ended, it’s safe to put the closing date on your calendar. You, as the Seller, do NOT typically attend closing; rather your attorney will have you pre-sign all of the paperwork.
Therefore, plan to contact your attorney about 7-10 days before closing to set up a time to pre-sign the closing documents.
Closings CAN get delayed by a day or two. Please stay flexible and keep that in mind.
Read>>: My Closing Date Keeps Getting Pushed Back from Realtor.com. Here are the main reasons:
- Your buyer hasn't sold their house yet (or THEIR deal fell through).
- Your buyer can't get financing. This happens more often than it should.
- Your buyer lost their job or switched jobs without telling their lender.
- A title issue came up with your home.
- Buyer's Lender requires additional documentation.
- Agreed upon repairs are not complete by Seller.
- There are new problems at the final walk through.
