So you’ve just closed on your new home. First and foremost, from all of us at Reali, congratulations and welcome home! Whether you are leaving the closing table, celebrating moving in, or putting together a charcuterie board for a housewarming party, there is almost certainly a song out there that reflects where you are in your home buying journey.

In the soundtrack that makes up our lives, the places that we call home play an important role. As such, it’s no wonder that so many artists have drawn inspiration from home and the places we live. As a new homeowner, you have just accomplished a huge goal — and possibly invested in your most significant financial investment.
So, now that the hard part is over, it’s time to kick back and relax. To help, we’ve put together this soundtrack of 6 songs to play after closing on your home.

#1: Closing Time — Semisonic

“So, gather up your jackets, move it to the exits
I hope you have found a friend
Closing time, every new beginning
Comes from some other beginning’s end, yeah”
A 90s favorite, this song is technically about leaving a bar at closing time, rather than a home closing, but with a title like “Closing Time,” it was a no-brainer to include on our closing playlist.

#2: Our House — Madness

“Our house, it has a crowd
There’s always something happening, and it’s usually quite loud
Our mum, she’s so house-proud
Nothing ever slows her down, and a mess is not allowed
Our house, in the middle of our street”
This 80s classic pop song marks the one and only Top 10 hit in the US for British ska-pop band Madness — and it’s certainly a good one.

#3: Coming Home — Skylar Gray

“I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the world I’m coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes
I’m coming home, I’m coming home”
This song instantly makes us think of driving down the road, with the windows down and the sun shining, heading home.

#4: Home – Blake Shelton and Michael Bublé

“But I wanna go home
I’ve got to go home
Let me go home
I’m just too far
From where you are
I wanna come home”
If there’s a better song to sing as you’re relaxing on the back porch of your new home, looking out your back door, we can’t think of it, either.

#5: Home — Phillip Phillips

“If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you’re not alone
‘Cause I’m gonna make this place your home”
This song instantly makes us think of driving down the road, with the windows down and the sun shining, heading home.

#6: Take Me Home Tonight — Eddie Money

“I can feel your heartbeat faster
Take me home tonight
I don’t want to let you go ’til you see the light
Take me home tonight”
This 80s song is full of classic nostalgia that makes us think of a road trip home. You grab the drinks, we’ll bring the snacks!
