Whoo hoo! You got the house! You’re now one step closer to realizing your dreams of home ownership! Time to get back to work so the closing attorney can be handing over those keys in 45 or more days!
Remember, the earnest money deposit check will be cashed now. It will show up as a buyer’s credit on the settlement statement. Contact the loan officer in order to set up an appointment. Make sure the lender has a copy of your contract. Time to get the appraisal and home inspection monies together. Speaking of which,home inspection will need to be scheduled.
If it hasn’t been done already, pricing out the hazard insurance is best done early in the process. You’ll need to select a real estate attorney or title company to handle your closing. They will need a copy of your contract as well so that title work and a survey can be ordered. Overwhelmed yet? No worries- Erin will still be there to help you along the way and make sure everyone is working together!
