- Monday. 8/9: Pre-Settlement meeting with our project manager; Sign closing papers with mortgage company
- Tuesday, 8/10: Receive keys!
My only piece of advice at this point in the game for those of you going through this process is to really communicate at this point and don't wait for your sales rep or PM to communicate with you. We weren't getting a completely clear answer as to when we'd get our keys versus sign our closing papers. Our sales rep said keys on Wednesday, but our PM said keys on Tuesday. This was an important detail to us since we had painters and contractors to schedule. After asking our sales rep again, she said some people get keys on the day that they sign the papers, some don't - at that point it is more up to the mortgage company.
After hearing that, we decided to just contact our mortgage company ourselves and ask. Turns out they provided us with a phone number and contact name and told us we had to call and schedule a meeting time to sign all of our papers. We would have never known this had we not taken control of the situation. I'd hate to think that maybe we could have been delayed had we not taken this step. So when you get to this point, just make sure to over communicate.
