Funds will be delivered to you at closing. The Motion Group must be able to obtain clear title from the title company to be able to schedule a closing date.
The closing process is the same as in any typical home sale. The closing appointment is at a reputable title company who ensures, we receive title only after you have received your funds in full. The only real difference is that there is a lot less paperwork to sign.
It goes something like this. When home owners decide to list and sale a property themselves, they save money instantly by avoiding Agent commissions, however this also means they will do all the work, things like, advertisement, taking calls from potential buyers, many of whom are not qualified to buy, and letting them tour your house invading your privacy. When you sell to Motion you avoid all of that. With Motion you will sale quick, easy, and with no surprises.
Absolutely! We will work together with the title company to order payoffs for all debt owed. Final payoffs are made from your total proceeds at closing.
Sometimes sellers ask: “should I pay off my mortgage/ pay off my taxes before we close?” and our advice is always to wait and allow the title company to handle all of the final settlement costs. The title company needs the releases of lien and proof of payment for all debt in order to insure the title. It is often faster to let the escrow company handle these payoffs – this way the title company know the debts have been paid and we don’t have to wait for the releases to come in before closing.
Once we know the closing date, we will reach out to you to start prepping for the move. Closing is when the final paperwork is signed, you get paid, and the property ownership is transferred to us. At this time the house should be empty and vacant, unless we have a different arrangement with you. We usually start with the necessary repairs right after closing, anything left behind will be donated or disposed of.
Absolutely. You can keep your appliances and anything else you want.
