8.

Order APPRAISAL

Finish INSPECTIONS

Depending on the Home, other inspections or document reviews may be required: e.g. Survey, Termite Inspection, Condo or Association Documents... 

11.

Finalize FINANCING

Turn in any remaining documents your Lender may need to secure your Loan for Final Loan Approval.  This includes confirming your home insurance provider, locking in your rates, and consenting in a timely manner the Lenders Closing Disclosures (typically via email/esignatures).

12.

SIGNING at Escrow

Sign Title Conveyance Documents along with Loan Docs and other important acknowledgements to transfer title of the property in front of a notary. Any downpayment will be due at this time in form of wire or Cashier's Check to Escrow. Funding generally follows the next day.

13.

FINAL WALK THRU

This is a walk thru of the property to confirm the condition is as agreed upon for purchase.  If any repairs were to be completed, confirm they are at this time.  This is not a time to make any new requests.

14.

CLOSING/RECORDATION

at 8:01am on the day of Closing, the title will transfer from Seller to Buyer, and the home is officially yours.  Keys will be disbursed after this is completed.  Note, keys or property access may not always be available until later that afternoon, so plan moving in accordingly
