Second question first. How and where you close will depend on what state you are in. Some use attorneys. Some use Title companies. Some have people who just handle closings. Of course, they will all get paid varying amounts, otherwise they would not do it at all. I have only done closings through Title company Escrow Officers, and they get paid out of escrow, which means from the funds placed in their hands to bring the HUD-1 balances to zero (money in matches money going out).
