You're ready to close when all parts are done in escrow process. All expenses like title insurance, inspections and real estate commissions are paid. Title to the property is then given to you as new owner and related title insurance is issued as outlined in the escrow instructions.
When closing is completely finished, you'll make a payment to the escrow company. As your real estate professional, I'll inform you of the acceptable way of paying.
