Buyer is “clear to close!”

A few days before the closing date—sometimes earlier, the buyer should get the “clear to close” from their mortgage lender. This means the mortgage has been approved and they have everything they need to proceed to the closing.

Once the closing time has been finalized, the buyer’s agent will schedule the final walkthrough inspection of your property. This usually takes place the night before or the morning of closing. It’s their opportunity to make sure the property is still in the same condition it was  during the home inspections and that any agreed upon repairs have been completed. They also will check to make sure any fixtures that were required to stay are there and will transfer with the property.
