Thinking About Selling Your Home?

Close of Escrow

Closing Day

Congratulations on reaching this stage in the process of selling your property! While the end is in sight, there are still a few final steps to complete before your property is officially sold. Check with your agent to confirm that all items are in order and everything is ready for a smooth closing day.

Final Walk-Through Inspection

 One important step to remember is the final walk-through inspection, which usually occurs the day of or the day before closing. During this inspection, the buyer will verify that the property is still in the same condition as outlined in the Purchase Agreement and that there are no new issues or items left behind by the seller.

Cancel Home Services and Utilities

 It’s also important to cancel any home services and utilities that you no longer need after the closing. Your agent will provide you with a list of contact numbers to make this process easier.

Be Prepared

Even at this late stage, unexpected issues can sometimes arise. However, your agent is there to help you navigate any problems and get things back on track in a timely and stress-free manner. If the buyer’s loan doesn’t process on time or an appliance on the property breaks, your agent will know what to do.


Finally, it’s time for the closing. You, the buyer, and the closing agent will sign the settlement agreement, which outlines all of the financial transactions that have taken place during the process. If you cannot attend the closing in person, you can make arrangements depending on the circumstances and notice given to all parties. You will also need to have all keys and other pertinent information for the buyer at the closing. Once everything is signed, you have officially sold your property.

Tips For Selling

Give your house a deep clean

The first impression of a home is crucial, so it's important to take the time to thoroughly clean your home before listing it. This includes wiping down surfaces, mopping floors, cleaning toilets and bathrooms, and refreshing rugs. Consider hiring professionals to ensure your home is in the best condition possible. A clean home will appeal to buyers and help you secure a better price for your property.

Declutter the home

A cluttered home can distract potential buyers and make it difficult for them to envision themselves living in the space. By decluttering and organizing your home, you can create a more inviting environment that allows buyers to focus on the property rather than being overwhelmed by your personal belongings. This can increase the appeal of your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers.

Call a Handyman

To increase the appeal of your home to potential buyers, it's important to address any necessary repairs before listing it. Taking care of necessary repairs can show buyers that you have maintained the property and can give them more confidence in the home's condition. Addressing any issues beforehand can create a more positive impression and potentially secure a better price for your property.

Paint the Walls

Updating the paint in your home can do wonders to freshen up the space and make it more appealing to potential buyers. Choosing a neutral color palette throughout the house can help buyers to more easily envision their belongings in the space rather than being distracted by bold or outdated colors. By keeping the color scheme neutral, you can increase the appeal of your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers.

Increase Your Curb Appeal

Know what you can live with and cannot live without and also those things that can be taken care of with a simple remodel. If you need a four-bedroom home, don't buy one with two that requires a massive addition which can break your budget.

Stage your Home

Homes staged with furniture tend to sell more quickly because they feel more inviting and homely. If you have neutral furniture that you can leave in the home, it can enhance the appeal of the space. If you don't have the necessary furniture, consider hiring a professional staging company to help create a cohesive and welcoming look. This can increase the appeal of your home to potential buyers and lead to a quicker sale.

Depersonalize your Home

While it can be helpful to leave a few tasteful, framed photos around the house to create a welcoming atmosphere, removing personal items such as family photos is generally a good idea. This allows potential buyers to more easily envision themselves living in the space and can help them to feel more connected to the home. By removing your personal items, you can create a more neutral environment that allows buyers to picture their belongings in the space easily.
