HOW IT WORKS

LOGO-MAIN-160x75

Most closings take between 30-45 days.  Here’s an example timeline showing you what you can expect from contract to close:

June 1st

Contract Received

When you have a fully executed contract, send it to us ASAP so we can get started clearing title.  

Once we receive the contract we will:

June 1st

June 3rd

Escrow Deposit Due

Most contracts require the buyer to make the escrow deposit within within 3 days.  Check your contract terms to make sure you don’t miss the deadline.

June 3rd

June 5th

Title Search Complete

We will receive the title search within 2-5 days and notify all parties of any issues that come up and need to be cleared prior to closing.  

If there is an association requiring approval, you should apply to the HOA for approval by this point.  If you are obtaining a loan, you should have submitted a loan application by this point.  Refer to your contract terms for specifics.

June 5th

June 10th

Municipal Lien Search Complete

We should receive the municipal lien search within 5-10 days and will notify the parties of any outstanding permits or code violations.  

June 10th

June 15th

Estoppel Complete

Homeowners associations have 10 days to complete an estoppel request.  By this point we should have received the estoppel and can notify the parties of any HOA violations, special assessments, or deliquencies.

June 15th

June 20th

Title Cleared – Ready to Close

At this point your survey should be complete and most title issues resolved.  If it’s a cash transaction, we are likely ready to close.  If finance, we are likely in communication with the lender awaiting their clear-to-close.

June 20th

June 25th

Closing Prep

A few days prior to closing we will circulate a draft settlement statement to buyer & seller, selling agent and listing agent.  We will schedule the signing dates & times for all parties and put the finishing touches on all the draft documents. 

Prep the bubbly!

June 25th

June 30th

Let’s Close!

Buyer & seller closings are completed, usually separately.  Both parties sign either in our conference room, remotely, or online via e-Signing.  At this point, the seller is paid, the buyer receives the keys, and we pop the champagne!

Congratulations!
