Contract to Closing

Contract to Closing on Real Estate

Often the main concern in a real estate purchase contract is the selling price of the home. Other factors also determine the net bottom line for the buyer and the seller. Home inspections will vary depending on the type of property you are purchasing. A large historic home, for example, will require a more specialized inspection than a small condominium. Home warranty coverage is for systems and appliances in good working order at the start of the contract. Home buyers can purchase their own home warranty at closing or negotiate that the Seller provide the coverage. It’s guaranteed to be hectic right before closing, but you and your REALTOR should always make time for a final walk-through. Buyer closing costs a prepared on the settlement statement, called a HUD-1. It is this statement that gets the most attention. The HUD-1 outlines all of the charges to each party (buyer and seller).
