Plan Ahead

Once the closing day is approaching, you will need to make a few plans. First, you will want to plan the closing around the end of your lease, if you are renting. Planning for a smooth transition helps avoid living arrangement gaps. You will also need to take off some time at work to move, ask for a few days ahead of time. There are a few other things to consider:

Prepare to Sign

You will need to sign many documents, so you need to be prepared. If you have any questions about anything during the process, do not be afraid to ask. Owning a home is a big step and you should be aware of what you are getting into.
