Roughly a week before the closing, Melissa Erickson, my transaction coordinator, will contact the title company and lender that will be closing the transaction to make sure that all of the necessary forms and documents have been prepared and are going to be available for you to sign on the appropriate date.
We will also contact each party to the transaction to be certain that they have taken each action necessary for closing, so that the entire closing can proceed on the date and time planned. Experience has taught us to look at the calendar and back track dates to make sure that we can stay in compliance! For example, if the contract says we need to close by the 28th, will we need to sign by the 26th to get data back to the lender in time to fund on the 28th?
We will prepare you in advance for the process of the closing, advising you of any documents you must bring to the closing, how much time to block off for the transaction, and any other information that is pertinent to the closing meeting including what you should expect to net out the sale!
