Unless you have gone through it before, the mortgage closing process can seem a bit mysterious. Once you understand what happens, though, you will see that the process is fairly straightforward. Closing will occur once your loan is approved and all conditions of your sales agreement and loan are met and approved.
Home Buying Process
Before your loan can close, many people will be hard at work to get everything done. The buyer and seller reach an agreement, at which point the loan application and approval process occurs. Next is home inspections, contingencies and conditions of the purchase agreement, and final documents requested by us. At this point, closing can be scheduled.
During the buying process, the following steps must be completed:
- Preapproval for a loan
- Buyer makes offer that is accepted
- Loan application is submitted and we provide Loan Estimate
- Escrow company requests documents and completes escrow requirements
- Property appraisal and inspection
- Closing Disclosure is provider
Murfreesboro Mortgage Loan Closing
You will need to sign documents during closing, including the agreement between you and the seller and between you and the lender.
You will also pay escrow and lender fees, or closing costs. Depending on your loan, you may be able to roll closing costs into your mortgage. Some lenders will also pay closing costs if you want to trade off for a higher interest rate.
An agent will conduct the closing meeting and make sure all documents are signed and recorded. The closing may occur at the title company, lender's office, escrow company, or settlement agent's office. You will need to sign the Closing Disclosure, which includes the closing costs; the final Truth in Lending Act statement that covers your APR and loan costs; the mortgage note that states your promise to repay the loan; and the mortgage or deed of trust that secures the note.
Once these documents are reviewed and signed, you will get the keys to your new home.
