How long before closing did you get clear to close?

We were supposed to get a clear to close last friday (closing in scheduled for this Friday, the 5th).  Last friday LO said Wednesday (tomorrow) but I haven't heard from them at all today.  I'm getting a little nervouse!

Re: How long before closing did you get clear to close?

  • We got the official clear to close 2 days before closing, but didn't get the final numbers and official closing time until less than 24 hours before.

  • Ok, I guess we aren't totally abnormal, we have a scheduled closing time/place, we are just waiting on final clear from underwriter.

  • I think about 48 hours in advance- I know it really came down to the wire and I was sure we'd miss the deadline but everything was fine in the end.

  • We got the numbers 24 hours in advance, but the official clear-to-close 2 hours before... it was nerve wracking. 
  • I think actually a day or two before.  I had to call everyone (incl LO and my realtor) and ask if there was anything else that needed to be done, etc etc.  Light fire under their butts, essentially.  I had had it in my mind we would close on a certain date the whole time (it was an approx date) and I called and emailed them all that week to see if it couldn't be done ...it could and was, we closed that Friday.

    I just wanted to let you know in case you have to be the catalyst to make it happen like I did.

  • We were cleared a week in advance, but I know that is abnormal. However, we didn't get the official $ amount til closing day.
  • Thanks everyone!  I had emailed yesterday and hadn't heard back so I got nervous.  Apparently they had an all day training, which I found out when I called yesterday evening.  The LO said everything was in order, and no reason to worry...hopefully I can believe her!

  • We got the clear to close about a week people our 2nd potential close date so they moved up our close date so from that day it was about 3 days prior.

    Not until closing day. They had to push back our closing time by four hours. When we started signing the paperwork, documentation was still coming in during.

  • I was supposed to close at 10 am on the 20th, then 12 pm on the 20th, then 2 pm on the 20th, then 4 pm on the 20th, then 5 pm on the 20th, then 10 am on the 21st, then 4pm on the 21st.

    We finally closed at 2 pm on the 22nd.  I loathe Wells Fargo mortgage.  In this situation, I was the seller.   As frustrated as I was, imagine how miserable it was for the buyer.
