To help you know what to expect, I’ve compiled a short Closing Day Q&A so you can roll up to the closing table like a homeowner boss.

1. Who will be there?

A: Situations vary, and due to Covid, you can expect some combination of these folks: Buyer that’s you, your real estate agent, the mortgage lender, title company representative, or notary.

2. What will I do?

A; Stretch those fingers and get ready to sign, sign, sign. At closing, the seller will sign ownership of the property over to you, and you’ll sign to receive possession. Signing can take anywhere from an hour to three. It just depends on how many questions you have.

3. What should I bring?

A: Bring a photo ID and a cashier’s check to pay any closing costs. Your lender or escrow agent will tell you any other documents you need to bring that are specific to your situation.

The Closing Process

The closing process is relatively simple, but be prepared for A LOT of paperwork. And always, always, always ask if you have a question along the way. Once you’ve signed the last page, it’ll take 2 business days to close and record on your home. At that time, you’ll receive your keys, and now it’s time to celebrate!
