Congratulations on going unconditional! You’re on the homeward stretch toward getting the keys to your new home.
If you’re a new home buyer who’s never been through this process before, it’s tough to know what to expect. I always like to be straight with my clients about all the steps involved between going unconditional and settlement day. There’s no point keeping anyone in the dark when such a huge, important purchase is concerned.
