So it’s closing day on a house and you are a normal human being who wants to know what to expect. Maybe you need some closing day tips and want to know what happens on closing day for the buyer. In a nutshell its the official day you become a home owner. Let us rejoice in this momentous occasion! Here you are at the closing table and you should be patting yourself on the back for a job well done.
At your designated closing location, which is usually a title company’s office. You can expect to walk into a small conference room like setting and the title company’s closer will be there for you to start signing an endless amount of documents. Okay it’s not endless but we sure do hope you don’t catch carpal tunnel syndrome after this.
In all seriousness, the title company’s closer will do their best to make you feel as comfortable as possible and answer any questions that you may have. Most of the documents are financing documents. You can expect to sign the final closing statement which you received a preliminary closing statement a couple days before closing to review. You can expect your real estate agent and lender to be at closing. The sellers of the home will not be there. Each party (the buyer and seller) closes separately at different times during the day. Sometimes the seller will close the day before since the seller always closes first.
All you have to bring is a photo license and yourself.
