Your Realtor will prepare the Real Estate contract for Sale for your signature. You have the right to get an attorney to review the contract within three days of it being fully signed by all parties. After attorney review you will be considered under contract .

Coordinate with your Realtor the scheduling of any buyer home inspections, or certifications. Receive buyers Mortgage Commitment . Perform seller certifications. Up to two weeks before closing, transfer utilities, obtain moving company, and change your mailing address.

Buyers schedule their final walk through prior to closing. If you choose, complete the final walk through with your buyers, wherein, with their Realtor, buyers will complete a final inspection and accept the house in its current condition with no warranties, or guarantees. If a seller needs to bring money to the table, one must obtain certified funds for payment.

Settlement day has arrived. Attend settlement with your Realtor, title company, the loan officer, buyers, and, if you choose, your attorney. After signing the Deed and associated settlement documents, you will provide keys to the buyer and receive monies due to seller.
