Frequently Asked Questions and Policies

Real estate transactions can be intimidating. Here is a list of frequently asked questions. If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to contact our office or email!

A standard closing usually takes between 3-5 weeks depending on a variety of factors. However, refinance closings typically can be completed much quicker. On closing day, you can expect to be at our office for between one and two hours.


Closing costs are typically negotiated in the terms of your contract. The costs are usually split between the buyer and seller due to their respective responsibilities. For example, home warranty is usually paid by the seller. In the event of a refinance closing, some lenders will allow you to include closing costs in the loan. 

Closings are usually held at our office. We ask that you show up 15 minutes before your closing and bring a state-issued ID. During special circumstances, the buyer and seller can meet at different times. In the event you can’t make it at all, a power of attorney form can be provided. 


All real estate transactions in South Carolina require an attorney to oversee them. Additionally, using an attorney as an escrow agent ensures that all money is tracked properly and that no word to mouth deals take place. This protects both sides by ensuring all deals are legally conducted.
