8 Steps to Buying Your First Home : Step 7

Step 7 : Finalize Your Loan

Once you finish attorney review you deliver the final set of earnest money. Then you work with your lender to finalize your loan in time for the closing date. The biggest step between now and closing is called the appraisal. This is where the bank verifies the value of the home you’re looking to buy. Once everything is approved, you get a clear to close document, which is basically a green light for the lenders and attorneys to schedule a closing.
