How to ensure an efficient closing for your client.

HOW YOU CAN PREPARE

As soon as possible, provide us with commission agreements and contract invoices, such as a home warranty and termite bond, so that they may be accurately reflected in the settlement statement. We will need any Pay at Close information 24-hours before the closing date. This will allow us to process additional checks and have them available at closing. If you plan on bringing the earnest money funds to closing, please let us know as soon as possible.

Along with all house keys, garage door openers, and other such items, please bring any additional documents you need signed. Finally, if you need us to wire funds, please contact Meredith Hodge to accommodate.
