Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties Real Estate. Tips for home buyers, home sellers by Gita Bantwal,Realtor at Re/Max Centre Realtors.: June 2009

Five things Buyers forget to do for settlement inspite of being informed about it

Most agents explain things to the buyer at the time of agreement of sale and then after inspections they just wait for mortgage commitment.

It is important to remain in touch with the buyers to make sure every thing is going on smoothly.

We should also try to get a preliminary Hud1 so that they have an idea how much to bring to settlement.

Some of the things buyers forget to do are

1. To bring the funds in certified funds. They thinka personal check is acceptable and then have to go to the bank on day of settlement.

2.To bring picture ID. If one person is driving then there are occasions when the other person says they have left the driver's license in their car.

3.To call to transfer utilities. Some sellers have it shut off as of date of settlement      and if it is the weekend buyers may have to wait.

4.Home owner's insurance. Mortgage companies ask for proof in advance sometimes but some do not. If it is a cash deal no one asks for it.

5 Do a final walk through on day of settlement and bring the home inspection addendum to see if the sellers did all the repairs they agreed to do.
