    Step 7: Address the Details

    In the final weeks before closing we will remind you of final details like selecting your homeowner’s insurance, addressing last-minute underwriting requests, setting-up utilities and scheduling a final walk-through.

    Step 8: Go to Closing

    We help you review the closing disclosure and answer last minutes questions. And we will celebrate with you as you sign the paperwork, get the keys and move into your new home!
