Closing on Your Emerald Coast HomePosted on 04/25/14
After months of searching, you have finally found the house of your dreams. You have signed a contract and been preapproved for a mortgage. From this point on everything should be smooth sailing, right? Put aside thoughts of movers and what color you will paint the walls because one of the most important parts of the home buying process is quickly approaching, the closing.
In a perfect world, closing would be a mere formality. It should just be a matter of two signatures and a check exchange between buyer and seller. However, if you and your Destin real estate agent do not prepare, your closing could become a disaster.
Communication is key in this process. You should know what to expect from all parties involved in the deal. As your real estate professional represents you, the best way to have a successful closing is to discuss every potential outcome. Another thing that will help is to review your loan documents in advance. Not only will this allow you to familiarize yourself with the paperwork but will also let you know how much money you must bring on closing day.
For a successful closing, contact a RE/MAX Southern agent. Our group of Gulf Coast real estate professionals have the knowledge and experience to help you find your dream home and make closing a breeze.
