Moving Forward with a Home Purchase
Once you have found the home that is right for you, it’s time to present an offer. This will consist of earnest money to be held in an escrow account, a loan pre-approval letter if you will be financing the purchase, and a written purchase agreement. This agreement will set forth your terms of the purchase and a schedule of events in order to own the property. This extremely important document is a legally binding agreement and should be carefully prepared by knowledgeable REALTORS® who are qualified to cover all of your interests.
Final Steps for Home Closing
Upon your complete satisfaction, arrangements will be made to attend a closing for your new property. The closing will typically be facilitated by the title or escrow company that is holding your earnest money in an escrow account. After furnishing the down payment and the other applicable fees that have been agreed upon prior to closing, final papers will be signed. Once the deed and mortgage are recorded in the state Registry of Deeds, you will officially be a new homeowner!
