Do I have to be at closing?

The short answer is yes if you want to buy the home.

It is most important for the buyer to be at the closing as that is where all the papers and loan information is signed.

 

The seller, well not as important as they can sign early, but still it is better for them to be there, just in case of any issues.

Remember, this is a major transaction in your financial life why not make sure all is good by being there!
