You just signed for your first home buying purchase and you’re so excited to get your keys!! It’s true, Real Estate is STILL one of the best ways to invest and you did it! The inspection passed and the financing approved! It’s an exciting time and you may be wondering if your closing will go as smooth as everything else!

There are a few things you can do to make sure!

  1. If you’re purchasing a condominium or home that requires a Home Owners Association approval, you will need the original copy of the approval letter. It’s best to get this in advance and drop it off to the Title company prior to closing so you don’t forget! (or have your Real Estate agent do that for you!)
  2. You’re also going to need personal identification of who you are. That could be a government issued picture I.D., i.e. driver’s license, passport, concealed weapons permit.
  3. and a Second form! So Driver’s licenses plus my concealed weapons permit! (yup! you can use that!)

A great Real Estate Agent will be able to guide you through the buying process but your Title Attorney is who really closes the deal! If you have a lender in the mix as well, the process can be hard if you don’t have great people working for you, but it doesn’t have to be!

Are you ready to close?
