A few days before the closing date, the buyer should get the Clear to Close from his or her mortgage lender. This means the buyer’s mortgage has been approved and the title company can schedule a closing date.
Once a closing date, time and location have been scheduled by the title company the buyers realtor will schedule a final tour of the property. This usually takes place the day before closing to make sure the property is still in the same condition it was during the inspection and all agreed upon repairs have been completed. It’s important to remember that curtain rods, blinds and all fixtures are to be left with the property along with any items that were agreed upon in the contract.
