Mail Away Closing in Bonita Springs Florida
Whether it is due to distance, poor health or a scheduling conflict many Bonita Springs home sellers and even home buyers do not attend the closing. Ask your listing agent and you will learn that the majority of closings are unattended by either party. Both buyer and seller can sign their documents by “mail away” using over night delivery. In order to close by mail-away the seller may have to find a local notary to endorse the documents. The seller will be required to provide proof of identification, as well.
Another work around, if a seller is out of tow is that the listing agent can make arrangements for the home seller to sign their closing documents in advance by several days. The final closing figures for sellers are often completed early enough for a seller to visit the real estate attorney or title company prior to the closing date to sign the documents. Signing in advance is helpful for home sellers who will be leaving town because their furniture and contents have been moved or those who may be upsizing or downsizing. If they are having simultaneous closings it is convenient to close the first property days before so that the seller can concentrate on the “buy side” of their replacement real estate transaction.
Experienced listing agents can help you coordinate a closing or to sign in advance if it is helpful to your exit plan.
