Don't you love those buyers that think the second they sign, they get the keys. How many times have I explained that in detail and the repercussions of what could happen should I give them the keys before it closes.
No, I really CANNOT give you the keys.
How many times have you explained to buyers that closing is not when you sign. There are still so many more facets involved after you sign the documents. If ANYTHING should go wrong and I give you the keys, you are still trespassing on the seller's land until they have money in their hand.
Then once they sign, it's the waiting.... waiting..... waiting..... A call every hour from the buyer or you to escrow or title to see if it has funded and been recorded. Yes, these are the best and the worse times for us I think. The buyer won't stop bugging you; you are ready for this month plus ordeal to be over and want to see happy home owners in their new home.
But trying to explain to them that they cannot have the keys until you get that call is like showing a kid a lollipop and saying, stare at this for a couple days till I say you can have it. UGH.... not fun. But necessary.
Then you have those buyers that don't remember allowing the seller 3 days AFTER closing to move out. Now it's about 6+ days from the signing and they are really starting to get antsy. But it is what it is. I remind them, you will be in shortly, this just seems like a long time. I cannot break the law by giving you the keys early whether or not the home is vacant. Sorry.
How have you waited out the time from signing to closing? Had any horror stories of buyers breaking in early? Check out my St George real estate affiliates for excellent buyer and seller articles plus my Sedona homes professionals help their buyers at closing. Thanks for reading!
