If you’re closing on a home or refinance during the month of December, you may want to keep in mind that many in the real estate and mortgage industry may be on vacation. Offices will be lighter staffed than usual and this is a shorter month with the Christmas holiday. I have not heard an official word from Mortgage Master yet…how ever, it would not surprise me if our office (and many others) closed early on Friday, December 21st and on Monday, December 24th assuming our closings are all taken care of. Offices will be closed for Christmas.
I suggest making sure your Mortgage Professional has everything they need for your loan approval and be as flexible as possible with your signing appointments for the escrow company.
This will help keep you on Santa’s good list!
