It’s almost over. All the hard work you put in to get your home ready for sale, keep up the property appeal while it was on the market, negotiate your offers, review your contract, and all the rest now finally result in the closing. You’ll move out of the property, the buyer will do a final “walk through,”‘ and you’ll go to the closing to sign a lot of documents and walk out with your check.
To help you in that process, we will give you some tips on setting up your move and explain what happens in a closing. We hope that our Orientation Guides have helped in some small way to explain and demystify the home selling process.
We wish you the best of luck on your sale, and for the future. Thank you again for giving Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty the opportunity to work with you.
