livework st louis: Live/Work St. Louis - First Time Home Buyer Waiting Till the Last Minute - Don't Let the $8,000 Tax Credit Pass You By - 08/20/09 12:09 PM
We understand there are procrastinators, and that some folks work way better under pressure.  This is one instances though where a little pre-planning will make sure you make the deadline of November 30, 2009.  If you think you can wait to close on the last day, you better think again.  Most title companies will be closed the day after Thanksgiving.  That leaves you only Monday, November 30.  How many people will be in line to close that day?  Then, what if the numbers are wrong and the company you are getting your loan from has to re-disclose and you have to … (0 comments)
