Closing Your Home Sale with Sandsland Real Estate

Ensure a Smooth Transition by Understanding Your Responsibilities

Closing the sale of your home is both an exciting and critical phase of the real estate transaction. It involves finalizing all agreements and making sure that you leave the home in the condition agreed upon at the time of the sale. Sandsland Real Estate is here to guide you through this process, ensuring that everything goes smoothly.

What to Keep in Mind During Closing

  • Do Not Remove Agreed-Upon Fixtures:

    It’s important to remember not to pack or remove any items that were included in the sale of the home. Generally, unless specified in the contract, all fixtures should remain in place.

  • Maintain the Condition of the Home:

    You are obligated to hand over the home in the same condition as it was when the sale was agreed upon. This includes maintaining all aspects of the property as per the terms of the agreement.

  • Handling Major Disasters:

    If any major damage occurs to the home between the agreement and the closing, you must immediately inform the buyer. Depending on the situation, the buyer has the option to either proceed with the sale and accept any insurance proceeds or to withdraw from the purchase and have their deposit returned. Remember, do not undertake any repairs until you have discussed how the buyer wishes to proceed.

Legal Obligations at Closing

Commitment to Close: Once the sale agreement is signed, both you as the seller and the buyer are legally bound to proceed with the transaction. Failing to close as agreed can lead to legal actions.

  • Seller’s Recourse:

    If you choose not to close the sale for any reason, the buyer has the right to sue for breach of contract.

  • Buyer’s Recourse:

    Similarly, if the buyer decides not to finalize the deal, you as the seller have the right to either keep the buyer’s deposit or sue for damages due to breach of contract.
