The following is a visual representation of the Closing “Real Estate” process when buying homes as a Nomad. It is part of the Closing process that you’d use for closing on a property.
Closing: Closing “Real Estate”
There are two primary groups of documents that you’ll see at closing. One set for closing the real estate portion of the transaction. And the other for closing the financing portion of the purchase. Let’s look at each step for the real estate portion in more detail. We’ll cover the “Financing” portion in the next stage.
- 2 forms of photo ID
- Your checkbook - sometimes there will be a last minute adjustment to the closing numbers resulting in a small shortage that the Title Insurance Company will accept a personal check for
- Your funds required for Closing (usually a certified check)
Mark this task complete when done.
Be sure to bring certified funds, two forms of ID and your checkbook.
Mark this task complete after Closing.
Next: Closing “Financing”
See the Closing “Financing” process next.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This checklist is based on what I personally use with clients in Northern Colorado and is based on the Colorado Real Estate Commission approved Contract to Buy and Sell Real Estate. Please rely on your local real estate agent for how it works in your local real estate market. This process will definitely vary in different States.
The following are improvements I plan to make to this page based on some of my Standard Process Improvement Questions.
