Escrow and Closing Costs
Congratulations!!! Once you reach this point, you are one step closer to becoming a Homeowner. After the negotiations have been hashed out, and you have a “ratified” contract, you (as the Buyer) will be asked to put some “skin in the game” and bind the contract by placing money into escrow. Escrow is the time period that is when you enter into your purchase agreement, and when the property title transfers to you, as the new owner. Closing Cost is the amount that your lender requires you to bring to close the purchase of your home. This amount can range from zero to twenty percent, depending on what loan your have, and what your lender is requiring. The usual range on average is from two to five percent, but again every situation is different.

A home warranty (or homeowners warranty) is a type of insurance. While your home may or may not be brand new, a home warranty that covers systems in your home like your appliances, your plumbing, and more. There are even home warranty plans that cover washer and dryers, your heating and air conditioning, and even roof leaks.
