Closing At Title: "What Do You Mean, I Can't Have The Keys Today?"

Closing at Title, Mike in Tucson, AZ Mortgage Lender

"But We Signed! I Want to Move In Now!"

There aren't usually many distractions at closing.  This one was an exception.  Grandma was the Buyer's Agent, and Mommy was the buyer.  (I was the lender, and I go to every closing that I'm able to attend.)

We funded, and this little one's home recorded the next day.



I'm Mike in Tucson, your preferred Tucson-based Arizona Mortgage Lender

I do purchase and refi loans all over Arizona.

GOOD MORNING MIKE!  These distractions at closing are welcome!

Precious shout! the perfect pouty face which a few buyers definitely feel if they don't get the keys right away. Good of you to attend the closing. Most lenders here don't.

love that face.

That's one thing different in GA.  When we close, (as a general rule) buyers and sellers sit down sign docs and then sellers hand over the keys.  There are a few exceptions, but in my area, not but a few.

Yes, it is true that you cannot always get the keys the same day but it is really the exception.

such a sad little face, the closing office should have bended the rules just this one time.

Mike - Nice shot, We usually get those looks when the buyers find out they have to wait a day or two to move in. Have a great week.

Hi MIke - lovely photo... oh my gooness  - give her the keys... how can you say 'No"

Boy I know plenty of people who'd feel the way that baby looks when closing is delayed.

Dear Mike -

In Georgia (as Tammy Lankford - #4 mentioned), Sellers and Buyers sign and the keys get handed over. It is interesting how different procedures are all over the country.

Have a happy day -

Lynn, I've got friends in Georgia, and have been praying for them during the storms of the past 10 days or so.  I'm adding you to the list as a new friend.  Thanks for stopping by.
