Once your property is under contract, all due diligence is completed, and financing has been approved, the only thing left to do is close the sale! However, sitting around a closing table with all the necessary parties may not be an option right now – so the best path may be a social distance-friendly closing.
Make sure you are in close communication with your title company to set up a way to sign documents, provide a mortgage payoff if you still have a loan on your home, and get access to a notary if you’re signing documents on your own.
After the final document is signed, make sure you’re paying close attention to the occupancy date promised on your contract. Moving companies are working but may be hard to come by right now, so don’t forget to start the conversation about moving services early.
Finally, you need to make sure you have a place to move to after the sale of your home is complete! Talk to Corbett & Co about helping you with the purchase of your next home as well. You can also check out our resources on buying during COVID-19 here.
