What happens at the real estate closing – Seller’s Edition

As a seller, did you know in most cases you do not even have to attend the closing?  If you are selling property, in most cases, you can meet with your attorney ahead of time to sign closing papers and to sign a power of attorney giving your attorney the power to sign documents for you at the actual closing.

If you are an out of state seller, we can make arrangements for you also so that you do not have to travel to the closing.

Some sellers prefer to be at closing and if you decide to attend, you can expect to sign a short stack of closing documents, including the deed to convey the property, along with title company documents that will need to be completed.
