Do you have a checklist for your buyers

that includes this fact that ---

Money should be available on the day of closing!


Great point in this re-post from

Surprise Arizona Realtor Jim Braun Sun City Grand Active Adult Communities.


Yes they will put a hold on that check!

Homes for sale Surprise Az

Your all ready to close and move in to your new home and everything is in place. Hold the phone! You had the checks from the company holding your portfolio sent to you and you are going to deposit today so they can wire funds tomorrow. Well that is great.

When told banks will hold those checks until they clear and that can take from 5 to 7 days they are serious.

Do they care you have been a customer at their institution since 1928? No!

Do they care that your brother works for them? No!

Do they care that you are suppose to close on your home in 2 days and title needs the funds? No!

 The point being they will put a hold on the check and you won't be closing on time. When you are depositing a check from one institution to another no matter how big or small the company, your bank will put a hold on the check until funds are cleared.

So make sure to get the check to your bank in time for it to clear so you can close on time.

Yep I sure do, and I talk right up front with buyers about making sure they have the necessary money available immediately if they want to make an offer. Who wants a bounced check when you are opening escrow on a new contract? Sellers won't take kindly to that!

We do not have issues like this in CA, three to five days prior to Close of Escrow the Buyer has to Wire in the funds...period...Endre

Most of our buyers are wiring in funds. That avoids any problems with personal checks and not being ready to close, Praful.

Funding is something that can't be stressed enough, Praful Thakkar ... and something that I try to plan and orchestrate along with my clients prior to Closing.  If monies must be moved at any point in the process, they typically must be moved on a timely basis to not slow the process down. Banking and transferring of funds moves at its own speed ... and has its own timelines.  It's best to not forget that ...
