When and where do I get my final proceeds check as a home seller?

The proceeds check or wire is disbursed upon close of escrow, after the escrow officer is able to verify the documents have been recorded and legal transfer has occurred. You, the home seller, can coordinate the disbursement of your proceeds with your escrow officer. Typically proceeds are either wired to your account or disbursed via check. All proceeds must be payable to the legal owner on title.
