You've entered into a contract to purchase a new house and the closing is scheduled for next week.
It's typical for some last-minute bargaining to occur at the closing table where sellers often try to tack on extra fees.
You have three options for the closing:
(1) attend yourself
(2) send an attorney authorized to close only per the previously negotiated terms, or
(3) pre-sign all the closing documents per the current terms and not attend the closing.
Which of these would increase a chance of success from a bargaining position and why?
