The hard part is behind you, but there are a few more steps before you can
move in to your new dream home.
6.1 Final Inspection. A few days before you take over the
property, we'll do one last inspection to make sure everything is in
6.2 Utilities and Services. You will have to change the
utilities and services of the house over to your name. Your
agent will assist in this process.
6.2 Closing Escrow. When your transaction is nearly
completed, the title company will provide you with a "closing statement"
that details all of the financial details of your home purchase. You agent
go over this with you to ensure its accuracy and explain any items you do
not understand. At the last step in the
buying process, the title company will have you sign the final documents,
including loan documents ("deeds of trust"). When everything is complete,
the title company will record the transaction for you at the County
Assessor's Office, and you will become the official new owner.
