A real estate closing is more of a process than a step in the buying process. A “closing” can also be called “escrow”, “completion” or “settlement”. This is the last bit of work in home buying process.
The seller and the buyer have agreed on a deal and now the closing process starts. You must first put money into an escrow account. A third neutral party will handle the escrow account money to protect the buyer and the seller. Then a whole list of things needs to happen:
- A title search needs to be conducted.
- Insurance for the new owner needs to be purchased.
- A closing agent needs to be obtained.
- A home inspection needs to be performed. At this time if any issues a rise a new agreement must be reached by both parties.
- On the date of closing you will sign all paperwork and transfer ownership.
There are at least 12 steps in the home “closing” process.
Before you own a real estate holding you’re investing in, you’ve got to close the purchase. #Ironclad
