A real estate closing, also known as a "settlement," is the final step in the process of purchasing a home in Idaho. It is the meeting where the transfer of ownership of the property takes place, and all the necessary documents are signed and fees are paid.
During the closing, the buyer will typically review and sign the purchase contract, mortgage documents, and any other necessary legal documents.
