What is a closing?

The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "closing."

Closing time at a store or bar means the business day is done. A closing in real estate means the sale is done. The closing is the meeting at which all the documents are signed and ownership of the property is transferred from the seller to the buyer.

A closing brings a real estate transaction to a close, formally putting a property in new hands.
