Fort Wayne First Time Home Buyer's Guide - Step 7 - CLOSING!!!!!!!!!!!

Whew.  We bet you thought you would NEVER get here!  Well, you did.  Congrats!  

Closings are generally held at the title company.  We have had a few close in our office, one close at the lender's office, and one almost closed at the hospital.  Our buyer/seller almost went into labor before her double closing. :)  

Most of the time, the buyers and sellers both attend the closing, along with both Realtors®, and the closer.  Sometimes the lender attends as well.  

You can expect the closing to be 30-60 minutes, with some being longer, some being shorter.  Remember to bring your funds needed in the form of a cashier's check, and bring your drivers license as well.  They need a copy of that.  

Oh, and expect to SIGN, SIGN, AND SIGN some more!  It's a pretty large stack of paper.  

After closing, if you wish, we can go out in the street and dance.  We have done that before.  Not kidding.  

So...  the journey is over.  You went through all the steps and came out on top.  Congratulations!  

Of course there are a lot of details that we didn't discuss, but we covered the major steps.  

Buying a home is a major life decision.  You need a Realtor® (or in OUR case, Realtors®) to help guide you through the entire process and beyond.  If you or anybody you know is in the market to buy a home in Fort Wayne, please send them this guide or have them call us directly at 260.704.0843, or visit

Excellent series Jared.  Indeed the home buying process can be a long road but with the help and guidance of a good Realtor® the process can seem shorter and certainly run smoother.  The Christiansen Team the ones you can depend on!

AW the closiing.. what everyone has been waiting for and hopefully, they've walked their way through your series and actually do get to closing.  They stand the best chance of getting there with the Christiansen team.
