For the homebuyer, settlement day is a big deal. It’s the day when they get the keys to their new house and can move in. It’s also an exciting time for the seller, who will be relieved to have sold their home and ready to move on with life. Though there are many different ways people choose to celebrate this occasion, one thing that everyone agrees is that it’s always nice when the real estate agent managing the transaction brings something as a closing gift for the new homeowners!
The best gifts for buyers from the real estate agent are items that can be used in the house. If you’re feeling creative, consider giving them kitchenware or decor that matches their style or interests. Some ideas include:
If they have kids or pets and live in an apartment complex, consider getting them some basic kitchen equipment like a blender or stand mixer so they’ll have everything they need right away.
Drinks are a great closing gift for any party. You can go with alcohol or non-alcoholic drinks, depending on the family’s preferences.
Drinks can be given to the buyer, seller, or both. If you know that both parties are attending the settlement meeting together and will be celebrating together at their new home, it might be nice to give them a bottle of wine or champagne as a symbol of your friendship and good wishes going forward.
Food is a great way to show appreciation. As a closing gift, it can be used to thank the seller and buyer for their patience and hard work in guiding you through this process. Food is also a great way of showing gratitude to the people around you who have helped make your dream come true! Here are some ideas:
