The Transferring Ownership Phase of Selling Your Home

Now for the fine print and John Hancocks.



During the Transferring Ownership Phase, your WeVett Agent will coordinate with the title company, lender, and Buyer’s agent to ensure a smooth transition.


Hopefully, the closing is smooth sailing!


However, it is not uncommon for closing dates to be adjusted during this phase. Both parties can ask to move the date – however both parties must agree before the date is changed. If the Buyer has financing issues arise, the closing date might have to be pushed back. Likewise, if you are completing any final work or renovations on your home, per the contract, this can also delay closing.


Make sure to schedule the termination of utility services so that it coincides with your closing date. Also, gather any important items needed for the home, such as garage door openers and spare keys, and put them in a designated location to be transferred to the Buyer.


When you do arrive on the day of closing, expect to see a lot of papers and prepare to perfect your signature! You and any other individual signing will need to provide a driver’s license or some type of identification.


The title company will guide you through the closing process and with luck you will walk out the door with a successful home sale in the books!
