I have some things to say about the escrow process… but I’ll refrain from detailing them until we close escrow, which is apparently now next Tuesday rather than this Thursday.
But in the meantime, here’s an impromtu poll:
Say that you were in the escrow process for purchasing a home and had signed all of the disclosures and all of the loan papers. You then get the following email from your mortgage broker:
I have great news, your sign off (to sign loan documents) is going to be Thursday, October 7th at 4pm. It is at ******* located at *****************. Your escrow officer is [someone], the escrow # is [number].
Please be sure to bring your driver’s licenses with you for the signing.
Shortly after this you speak with the realtor you have been working with and she suggests you start getting all of the services turned on (water, phone, etc.) the weekend of the 8th. Now, the question: would you assume that your closing date on escrow is the 7th? Please post your answer below, using only this information to help you decide, as I did.
to be continued…
