Loan ProcessLoan Process: Once the purchase and sales contract is signed with a buyer the mortgage process begins. The lender will order an appraisal of your home to determine the value. The lender will work together with your real estate agent and the buyer to finalize any paperwork required to close the loan.

Preparing to closePrepare for closing: Sellers should take this time to prepare for the closing, pack for and schedule movers, etc. A final walkthrough of the home is completed right before the closings and it is the sellers responsibility to have the home prepared for the buyer and in broom swept condition on closing day.

The ClosingThe Closing: At the closing the buyer and seller will sign documents to mak the sale official. The closing may take place at the attorney’s office or at the Registry of Deeds . Once signed, the deed must be recorded at the Registry of Deeds. At that point, the title is transferred to the new owner and the property is officially sold. You will then hand over the keys to the new owner.
