I had the opportunity last night to provide remote closing service for some people in Rocky Ford, Colorado.
This map will give you some idea just how remote the location is, and how important it is that people in this area have someone come out to them. It's over 90 miles from Colorado Springs:
My assignment was to do the closing on a FHA Title 1 home improvement loan. To be honest with you, it was the first time that I had ever done a FHA Title 1. But it wasn't difficult. There are several documents that are unique to a FHA Title 1, but they aren't hard to figure out. Compared to a typical set of refinance loan documents, this package was relatively small - only 50 pages.
I finally made it back to Colorado Springs around 10 p.m. I don't know if the borrowers fully appreciate what notary signing agents do, but it gave me a good feeling to know that they were able to get all of the papers signed and notarized ...
... without ever leaving their home.
