Presenting Your Bid
Once you’ve set your sights on your dream home, your whether in New Albany or Columbus, your agent acts as your representative, skillfully presenting your offer to the seller and maintaining seamless communication throughout the negotiation process. With Cutler Real Estate’s advanced technology platform, you can sign documents electronically, accelerating the buying process.
Finalizing the Deal
After riding the emotional roller-coaster of a real estate transaction, the closing process marks the finishing line. Often termed as the “Settlement” or “Escrow” process, it is managed in Ohio by a real estate escrow and title company, agreed upon by both buyer and seller during negotiations. The title company collects all necessary information from various sources like the title examiner, mortgage company, real estate agents, and both parties to prepare for the title transfer to you, the proud new homeowner.
This comprehensive process typically takes 30–45 days, depending on factors like financing conditions, appraisal, successful property inspections, title exam, and property survey. Once completed, you and the seller will schedule a meeting to sign the final closing documents. In most areas, the property title is officially transferred to the new owner when the deed is executed, delivered, and recorded at the county recorder’s office.
The moment of truth arrives when you receive the keys on a mutually agreed date between you and the seller. As the deed records, if agreed that keys are delivered at closing, you are officially a homeowner. Celebrate, for you have successfully crossed the threshold into your new home!
