Lately, when home buyers need to sign loan documents, this action has become an all too familiar problem. When buyers write an offer to purchase a home, shouldn’t somebody explain that they need to be available to sign loan documents? How about asking a simple question such as are you leaving town in the next 30 days? How about a friendly reminder such as you need to make yourself available to sign your loan documents and disclosures during our 30-day escrow.
We had an escrow ready to close, and I was informed by the buyer’s agent, on the day of signing (no less), that the buyer had to leave the state for a work conference and would have to sign the following week. This is nuts.
