Buying property Step 11

Buying a property. You are good to go – to closing that is. Make sure your realtor is with you and make sure that your mortgage broker shows up also. Most likely you will have questions for both of them and you do not want to sit at closing and try to get them on the phone. Make sure you have seen the HUD statement ahead of time and you are ok with all the numbers on it. Make sure you bring your driver license and you cashiers check.

As a buyer with a mortgage you will most likely be overwhelmed with the paperwork you see at closing. Nobody prepared you for 55 pages of stuff you don’t really understand.

Closing was supposed to take 30 minutes, and everybody is in a rush to get home. Do not let this get to you. If you need more time to read all the paperwork, read it, if you have questions, ask them. Do not be intimidated, or feel pressured. Take your time and feel comfortable before you sign. Congratulations !!!  You have just finished a successful real estate transaction and bought your new home. Enjoy it and have fun and start unpacking. Meet your neighbors open that bottle of champagne or go to the next bar and have a few drinks. It is finally time to celebrate. Congratulations!!!                                                         Anne Hensel       727 410 7777
