You have been given good advice by the professionals on this site for quite some time now. If you have not used any of that advice by now you have wasted your time and the FREE expertise of others. At this point in time your attorney should have asked you if you want an appointment to go over any concerns you may have including how much and the type of funds to bring to closing. As well as advising you to set up the final walk through. If for some unknown reason you are not using a real estate attorney to represent you at the closing the only advice I have for you now is GOOD LUCK! If you do have an attorney call him/her for the advice you need.
Make sure that you know exactly when you'll receive your keys, before you sign anything. You don't want to find out at closing--after you've signed everything--that you'll receive your keys 1 week (or so) later. Although that doesn't happen often, it happens frequently enough--hence the warning.
For the last week before you close:
Your agent should have given you information for having the utilities switched. Both buyer and seller contact the utility companies and tell them the closing date.
I also do my final walk through with my buyers an hour before going to closing. We are checking the condition of the property to make sure it is as we initially viewed it.
You will need your drivers license (make sure it is up to date) and any other items needed to close in your state.
You may want to prepare a list of questions for the sellers. Ask what day and time garbage pick up is. The garage door code if there is a keypad. Any little things you may have a question on how any items attached to the home work, i.e. water softner, thermostat, any appliances.
Congratulations and Good Luck!
