Many times sellers have already moved out of state or out of the area and ask the question ..... Do I have to make the trip to attend the closing?
The answer is no you do not. There are several options that you have and I've had clients do all of them at one time or another. Of course if you want to attend the closing, yes you are more than welcome to!
- You can have a friend or family member attend the closing for you and sign the documents for you with a temporary real estate power of attorney. I can help you attain this temporary p.o.a. through the title company.
- I can have the title company overnight you the closing documents. You can then pre sign the closing docs, and then overnight the package back to the title company. This is the method I usually prefer, but sometimes there is not enough time for the title company to get the docs prepared and have them shipped off to be signed and shipped back in time for the buyers closing.
- The last option, if we cannot work out the logistics for having the docs overnighted to be pre signed and if you have no one in the area that can sign for you as power of attorney, you can issue me a temporary poa and I'll sign for you as your agent and as your p.o.a.
So there you have it, if it is just too difficult or stressful for you to make the trip, one way or the other we will get the transaction closed for you!
