Closing Tips for Vancouver Condo Buyers and Sellers

The closing dates are one of the most important terms on the contract of purchase and sale. Here are some tips to make sure it goes smoothly.

1. Never close on a Friday, particularly at the end of a month because this is the busiest day for lawyers/notaries. Sellers may not get paid until Monday.

2. Wednesday is the best day to close and the second or third week of the month is the best week.

3. If you are buying and selling a property in the same time period, complete the sale of your home 2 days prior to the completing the purchase of your new home and have possession one day later than the possession date of the home you sold. 

4. Sellers must turn over the home you are selling in broom swept condition. Hiring a maid service is a good idea.

5.Buyers should not plan to move i until late in the day or the day after completion, in case the closing does not happen until lat in the day or the deal has to be extended.
