Today, we're shedding light on two fundamental concepts in finance: Funding & Recording

As a homebuyer, understanding these terms is essential for navigating the financial aspects of your home purchase journey with confidence. So let's get started!

Funding: Once the loan has been approved and all necessary paperwork has been completed, the lender disburses the funds for the loan. This usually happens shortly before the closing date of the home purchase transaction. Funding is what enables you to turn your homeownership dreams into reality. It's the money you need to secure your mortgage, cover closing costs, and make your down payment.

Recording: Now that we've covered funding let's talk about recording. After the closing, the mortgage documents are typically sent to the county recorder's office to be officially recorded. This creates a public record of the mortgage or deed of trust, establishing the lender's lien on the property. By recording the loan, the lender ensures that their interest in the property is legally recognized and prioritized in the event of a dispute or foreclosure. Recording the loan does not transfer ownership of the property but rather establishes the lender's security interest in the property until the loan is repaid in full.

This could delay important transactions, such as wire transfers for your down payment or closing costs. It's essential communicate with your lender and real estate agent to ensure a seamless closing process, regardless of when funding occurs.
