- Go over closing figures with Buyer prior to closing
- Go with Buyer to final walk through before closing
- Attend closing with buyer
- Return retainer to buyer at closing
This step takes 1-2 hours which seems a bit quick after all the preparation! But most closings are very informative and many times are the first time buyers and sellers have met! It can be a wonderful opportunity for sharing special information about the property and the neighborhood and many times the parties eagerly exchange contact information. The agent attends the closing but the closing is under the direction of the attorney or title company who coordinates all the paper work and the monies. It is at this time that the agent will receive a commission check for the company for which they work. They will in turn receive a portion of that check for being your agent.
