10 Ways to Delay a Closing

August 24, 2017

Buying a house / home  You really don’t want to do this do you?  I mean, delay the closing?  Not a good idea.  Can cause massive problems for you and your Atlanta Real Estate Consultant. 

  1.  Not submitting the requested docs to your local Atlanta loan officer.
  2. Not signing the e-docs sent to you.  Nothing can happen until your application  is complete.
  3. Choosing one of those on-line lenders where you can never get ahold of the loan officer and who does not keep you informed about your loan.  Use an L.O. that your Atlanta Real Estate Consultant has experience with.
  4. Not getting your Atlanta home inspection done right away.  Could cost you negotiating potential and lose the right to get out of contract if needed.
  5. Not getting the Atlanta home appraisal ordered right away.  Arrange with L.O. for payment of the appraisal.
  6. Not getting your Atlanta home owner’s insurance lined up.
  7. Your Atlanta Agent not getting addendums to the lender along the way.
  8. Borrower or Seller not expediting home improvement requests.
  9. Not signing the Closing Disclosure in a timely manner.
  10. Not arranging for money to be ready at your Atlanta closing.  Have it wired to the Atlanta Attorney the day before.
