Well the closing portion has taken quite a bit longer than I anticipated, but, closings sometime take much longer than we expect. In the old days, (a couple of years back), the bank would send the check for your purchase, and closings went pretty quickly, now days in the digital age, funds are sent by wire transfer, one would think this would speed things up right? No, now we have to wait for a funding number, this means, after all the paperwork is done and everybody is ready to leave, and you want to go to your new house, we have to wait and wait while someone in some office somewhere, takes the time to look at their e-mail and press a button to send the funding number. AND be aware sometimes, that person goes home and Never presses the button. What to do? Wait until the next day, when they show up at the office again and look at their e-mail. And God help you if it is a long weekend, all your stuff is packed up in the truck and you have, people coming to help you move.... Maybe we can find solace in the fact that some clerk in some office didn't have to inconvenienced by you, and got to leave on time. Sorry to say this is true, it happens all the time and the Banks don't really care. I know, I have complained to supervisors and was told, it is bank policy, to pull the plug at the end of business each day. I am so Glad that the American Taxpayers bailed out these noble institutions.
