You’ve made it through all the credit checks, submitted all the information the underwriter needed, got your home insurance taken care of, and the home inspector put their stamp of approval on the deal and now it’s time to close on your new house or investment property. Being a real estate investor, I’ve closed on many deals. Some deals went smoothly and some took some effort.

The first type of insurance you should have is liability insurance. While it is true that you will not be liable for everything that happens in the club since you cannot be responsible for people’s actions when they have had too much to drink, there are plenty of things that you will be liable for. If someone is injured or even killed in the club, the odds are high that the person or their family will try to blame you for it. You need liability insurance just in case it is ruled that the incident was your fault.

Honestly, how handy are you? What was the last thing you worked on around your home and how did that go? If you’re a handy guy or girl maybe installing a security product will work out okay for you, but for most people placing and installing home alarm equipment even when its wireless is a daunting task. Components need to be placed properly, devices need to talk to each other to work in harmony, and if you are going to have it monitored then signals need to be sent to the central station. That sounds frustrating. Most alarm companies offer installation for free up to $99 and give you the alarm for free.

Despite having a mortgage loan against your residence or not, you’re able to take advantage of a reverse mortgage. The less you owe on your residence, the more cash you’ll be able to gain access to.

The insurance must be an adequate amount equal to the present value of the home. Make sure the seller has notified the insurance company of the intent to vacate the property and that a tenant will be residing in the property. This will create an increase in the insurance premium and you want to be sure you are going to be able to afford the monthly payment with the insurance rate increase if it is written in the contract that you will be responsible for the insurance payments.

Did you know that if the seller lives out of state and he breaches the contract, that you can file a lawsuit in the county and state you dwell in but you would have to transfer the lawsuit to the state the seller resides in because you have to file a lawsuit in the sellers domain, and this can be very costly.

B.Know the hidden costs of expensive “toys”. We all have them – assets that are nothing more than grown-up toys. You need to know what those toys really cost to maintain.

Don’t – Pay off old judgments or old collections to try to improve your credit score. Often times this will LOWER your scores. If the lender requires you to pay these off or you just want to pay them off, you can do it during or just before or after closing on your home.
