It’s time to go to the closing. How should buyers & sellers prepare so all goes smoothly? While the closing agent (an attorney or title company) handles most of the details, there are some actions you can take to avoid last minute surprises. Be sure you know where the closing is and at what time and bring photo ID. Your REALTOR® should review the closing statement with you for accuracy prior to the closing.
Buyers should bring closing funds in the form of a certified or cashier’s check. Funds can also be wired, as long as it’s done in time to arrive for the closing. This usually means at least a day ahead. Wiring is not instantaneous.
Sellers should bring the new deed, keys, and paid receipts if work had to be completed as part of the contract. Be aware that it is customary for the closing agent to disburse monies after depositing collected funds and recording the deed at the appropriate Registry of Deeds. This means there could be a delay in disbursement after the actual closing. Again, keep in mind that even wired funds take some time.
The bottom line is that if you’re well prepared, closing day will be exciting and stress-free! Call me if you want to work with a REALTOR® who will make your closings stress-free. 603-526-4116, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.donnaforest.com

Many people are wondering what the new year will bring for the housing industry. Below is a summary of what experts are predicting for the 2014 real estate market on the national level.
- Home values are expected to appreciate around 4.3% or even higher by some optimists.
- Home sales will surge. Many housing pundits expect sales to be higher in 2014 than 2013. The three categories of buyers that will create this demand are first time home buyer, the move-up buyer, and the immigrant buyer.
- Demand may exceed supply. Experts expect a dramatic increase in demand for housing. As the spring selling season approaches, we will need to see a new wave of salable housing inventory to keep up with the increasing demands of buyers.
- Interest rates will increase by end of 2014. Projected rates are anywhere from 4.8% to 5.3%, although some experts predict even higher rates.
Bear in mind these are projections based on the US as a whole. While they give a good overall picture of the industry, we need to bear in mind that all markets are local and may not follow the national trends.
