How did the closing go?

By
Real Estate Agent with Atlanta Communities 303302

Until just recently, I made sure that I never missed a clients closing. Never. Wouldn't even consider the possibility. For me, closings are a time for both sides to enjoy the end of what could have been a very tedious and stressful process. The buyer gets a home they have fallen in love with and the seller gets to move on to new things.

Well, not so much anymore. During the Corona Virus social distancing times, closings have radically changed. I received yet another email this morning from a large closing attorney company that they are now excluding everyone but the signers from attending closings. No more agents!

Some closings are taking place from parked cars in the parking lot with the attorney shuffling paperwork between cars for signatures. Many more are doing mail aways where the paperwork is sent in advance to the seller and buyer to sign and send back, circumventing the whole closing get together, all together.

I miss being at the closings already. I dread having to ask my clients, How did the closing go?

Good morning Peter. The important thing now is for closings to continue to occur. The person to person contact can resume sometime in the future. Enjoy your day!

Hello Peter - Wayne Martin is correct.  The important thing to remember is that real estate closings continue.  Albeit with changes.
