Simultaneous Closing - SIMO

AAA

DEFINITION of 'Simultaneous Closing - SIMO'

A real estate financing strategy in which two simultaneous transactions occur during the closing on a piece of property. The seller creates a mortgage note on the property to help finance the property for the buyer. The note is then sold to an investor upon closing, which pays the seller cash. The buyer thus makes mortgage payments to the investor holding the note, the seller receives cash from the investor for the note, and the buyer receives the title to the property. This removes the seller from future transactions, as he or she will not receive mortgage payments.

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Simultaneous Closing - SIMO'

The seller may be motivated to initiate a simultaneous closing if cash is needed in the short term. The buyer is more likely to receive favorable financing from the seller because of the shortened transaction period. Some companies will not ensure the property title during a simultaneous close due to the speed of the transaction, since the parties' credit worthiness will be harder to determine in such a short time.
