Escrow is a term used to describe the period of being under contract while the buyer’s deposit is held in the brokerage, or attorneys, escrow account. This phrase is far more popular in other states, but around Massachusetts we simply use Under Agreement.
While buyers bear most of the burden on closing costs, there are a few for the seller’s side of the transaction as well. A seller will have the cost of the brokerage commissions, tax stamps with the counties registry of deeds, mortgage discharges and tracking, courier fees and a few other minor adjustments or pro-rated items. There are other items that will need to be handled in advance that the seller is responsible for as well. These items include smoke and carbon monoxide detector testing with the local fire department and final utility readings like water & sewer. Our team is there to make sure every item is taken care of and facilitated in a way to keep everything on track.
When do you need to be out of the house for good? You should plan on being out, along with all of your possessions, the afternoon prior to the closing. That means everything cleared out and the house in broom clean or better condition. The buyer will do a walk thru to ensure it has remained in the same condition and verify you have met the obligation of the contract. This should include all trash, no buyer wants to close on a house that has a curb full of trash that will be picked up in a few days. If you suspect your moving will involve large piles of unwanted items that you plan to throw away, do that in advance. Leaving any items or not properly cleaning the home to a minimum broom clean standard could cause issues at the closing, including delays or hold backs of your proceeds.
