When do you get house key after closing?
In Texas, you get them after funding. First you go in and sign the paperwork and then all the money changes hands. Once everyone has been paid, the house is yours and you get the keys.

Anna Matsunaga answered:
I heard you need to pay either cashiers check or bank wire transfer when you do closing. I m thinking to buy short sale condo full cash ( no loan )
I have never heard of a wire transfer having issues with a RE transaction with an escrow company. After all you must authorize any and all transfers.
