Know that human errors happen and prepare for them. You may just have to roll with them. There are many people involved in the closing process. The more people involved the more likely there is for Human error, but the more you prepare for it the better off you’ll be. Review the load documents in advance to help catch problems before the end of the process. If you review the loan documents you will also know how much money you need to bring to closing.
Take closing day off. If all goes well you could be done in 30 minutes, but plan for worst case scenario and hope for the best.
Expect the unexpected. Watch for typos in all documents. Check the numbers, a simple typo could hurt you if you don’t catch it before you sign the documents. If you schedule your appointment early in the day, if something needs to be changed on your loan there will be enough time to complete the change that day.
