On closing day, expect to sign a lot of documents and walk away with a big stack of papers. Here's a list of the most important documents you should file away for future reference. HUD-1 settlement statement. Itemizes all the costs - commissions, loan fees, points, and hazard insurance -associated with the closing. You'll need it for income tax purposes if you paid points.

Spell out the legal terms of your mortgage obligation and the agreed-upon repayment terms. Deed. Transfers ownership to you. Affidavits. Binding statements by either party.

You'll likely be responsible for a variety of fees and expenses that you and the seller will have to pay at the time of closing. Your lender must provide a good-faith estimate of all settlement costs. The title company or other entity conducting the closing will tell you the required amount for: Down payment Loan origination Points, or loan discount fees, which you pay to receive a lower interest rate Home inspection Appraisal Credit report Private mortgage insurance premium Insurance escrow for homeowner's insurance, if being paid as part of the mortgage Property tax escrow, if being paid as part of the mortgage. Lenders keep funds for taxes and insurance in escrow accounts as they are paid with the mortgage, then pay the insurance or taxes for you. Deed recording Title insurance poli...

1. Price it right. Set a price at the lower end of your property's realistic price range.2. Prepare for visitors. Get your house market ready at least two weeks before you begin showing it.3. Be flexible about showings. It's often disruptive to have a house ready to show at the spur of the moment. But the more amenable you can be about letting people see your home, the sooner you'll find a buyer.4. Anticipate the offers. Decide in advance what price and terms you'll find acceptable.5. Don't refuse to drop the price. If your home has been on the market for more than 30 days without an offer, you should be prepared to at least consider lowering your asking price.  This has been Reprinted from REALTOR® magazine (REALTOR.org/realtormag http://www.realtor.org/realtormag) with permission of ...

  Consider comparables. What have other homes in your neighborhood sold for recently? How do they compare to yours in terms of size, upkeep, and amenities? Consider competition. How many other houses are for sale in your area? Are you competing against new homes? Consider your contingencies. Do you have special concerns that would affect the price you'll receive? For example, do you want to be able to move in four months? Get an appraisal. For a few hundred dollars, a qualified appraiser can give you an estimate of your home's value. Be sure to ask for a market-value appraisal. To locate appraisers in your area, contact The Appraisal Institute or ask your REALTOR® for some recommendations. Ask a lender. Since most buyers will need a mortgage, it's important that a home's sale price be i...

Do wonders ever cease?  We have the opportunity to help someone interested in purchasing 159 acres of landlocked property and we are excited!  We will be working with the customer to gain access to this property as well as handling the closing. At First Title, technical closings are our favorite.  (Yes we love the easy ones but can't remember the last time one of those came across the desk!)  The land has not changed ownership in many, many years.  Of course it is inherited property.  Some of the steps we are taking are 1. Finding out who owns the surrounding property 2. Determining the true path of least resistance 3. Examining the title to the connected properties to determine who owns it and if any Successions (probates) are needed. 4. Making it a prioroty as there is a contract dead...
