Don't go to closing without reading this book!

A Simple Guide to the Complex Process of Closing on a House or Property.

The escrow and closing process is probably the least understood aspect of any real estate transaction. Misunderstandings about closing costs can result in hundreds or even thousands of dollars of needless expenses, and put seemingly solid deals at risk.

The Complete Guide to Your Real Estate Closing shows you how to protect your rights, or the rights of your clients, at the closing table. Filled with sample forms, worksheets, checklists, and more, this no-nonsense handbook takes you step-by-step from signing the sales contract to understanding all closing costs to what happens after all the closing documents have been signed. Use it as your one-stop resource for understanding each detail, answering each question, and preventing minor disputes from becoming major roadblocks.
