If you’re selling a home and you’re on a time crunch, there are a few things you can do to help speed the closing process along. Check out these three tips that could make yours go faster.
Can You Speed Up Closing?
The easiest ways to speed up closing on your house so you can move on to the next chapter are:
- Address repairs
- Resolve title issues
Let’s take a closer look at each.
#1. Address Repairs
Usually, a buyer pays a home inspector to check out the house and look for issues that need to be fixed. If anything pops up that the buyer asks you to fix, you can speed up your closing by either by making the repairs right away or seeing if the buyer will be happy if you just reduce the price or give them a credit so they can make the repairs themselves.
#2. Resolve Title Issues
If there’s a tax lien or anything else on the property, handling it before you sell is the best idea – and no matter what, you should provide proof of satisfaction to the title company to prevent any red flags. If you haven’t satisfied the lien, let the title company know that you want it paid out of the proceeds from the sale.
Keeping open lines of communication between yourself and your real estate agent, as well as the attorneys working on your closing, can help make sure you don’t hit any major snags.
