We are in the home stretch!
It’s essential to schedule the closing on your calendar and arrange to take the day off from work unless you are out of town, then notify us ASAP so we can arrange to overnight documents. Here are a few things to know about your closing date:
- Some factors could cause it to be pushed back (if BOTH the Buyer’s and Seller’s agree), such as a tight time frame for closing (anything 30 days or less), causing the Mortgage Company to need more time, etc. However, for planning purposes right now, count on your closing date being the final date.
- Closing generally takes place at a Title Company. Closing takes about 1 hour, but if there is a problem, it could take up to 2 hours. For this reason, it’s recommended that you arrange to take time off from work. We can’t specify a specific time but can sometimes request either morning or afternoon. If you have a time preference, please let us know.
- The closing start time won’t be scheduled until your Mortgage Officer gives us Clear to Close (CTC), meaning you’ve been ultimately approved for the loan without any conditions. This generally occurs 2-3 days before your closing date and is when we’ll be notified of the exact location and start time.
- Give all keys, garage remote controls, etc. to us for the Buyer.
