Jenny Didway, the Taylor Team’s transaction coordinator, joins me today to answer three common questions sellers have regarding the end of transactions.
Q: What are some things I can do to prepare for a home inspection?
A: Don’t be present. Give inspectors all the space they need to do their job and make sure everything is accessible. They’ll inspect all of the major items in your house—the HVAC unit, electrical system, plumbing framework, roof, floors, doors, windows, attic, etc. Also, make sure you change any burned out light bulbs. If an inspector sees a burnt out light bulb, they’ll assume there’s an electrical problem. Make sure all of the utilities are on inside the home as well.

Q: What if I’m out of town on the day of closing?
A: No worries! The title company can mail or email you the necessary documents to complete the transaction. All you have to do is find a notary and get them signed.
Q: What happens if I have to sell and buy on the same day?
A: Jenna has seen a lot of sellers come to their closing with moving trucks. They load up everything but their bed and toiletries the night before, and then load those items the morning of the closing and bring them along while they complete the transaction.
