4 Tips For A Smoother Home Closing


Purchasing a home can be a sometimes overwhelming process, wrought with emotion. Following these 4 tips will help smooth out those emotions and the entire home buying process.

  • Stay Calm

Staying calm in an emotionally charged situation such as home buying is much easier said than done, but it is imperative. Your emotion will spill over to other members of the team and the result will more than likely not be in your favor.

  • Get Pre-Approved for a Mortgage

Getting pre-approved for your mortgage is a huge signal to your realtor, the buyer’s realtor and the seller that you are serious about purchasing. Home shopping with a pre-approval will save you and your realtor valuable time and energy showing you only those homes within your financial reach.

  • Respond Quickly To Lender Requests

Home loans require a ridiculous amount of documentation. You will be asked for proof of everything you say and often proof of things you didn’t say. There isn’t any sense arguing with the lender, just produce the required document quickly before your loan package gets shuffled off to the side and delayed.

  • Ask Questions If You Do Not Understand

This is all new territory for you and there will be more than a few things you will not understand. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. I suggest you do some general research before you begin your home search about the process. Understanding how the process flows and how the parts are sometimes dependant on each other will benefit you.


Following the tips above will enable everyone involved in your home buying process to work together smoothly and efficiently.
