At closing, the title company will pay off your mortgage, but you will most likely have several hundred dollars in an escrow account with your mortgage company!  So after closing, make sure to reach out to your mortgage company and give them your new address so they can forward you those funds!

Lastly, update the post office with a forwarding address and friends and family!
