The closing agent will furnish all parties involved with a settlement statement. The settlement statement summarizes the financial transaction. The buyer will sign this statement first, and then the seller signs and then closing attorney. In Virginia the sellers does not physically have to be in the closing attorneys office, however if they prefer to sign in person then they can. If you are receiving funds from the transaction, you can elect to either have the funds wired electronically to an account at your financial institution, or have a check issued to you at the closing. The seller should arrange to hand over all keys and any other important information to me as your (Real Estate Agent) so I can pass on to the buyers agent.
