Lately I've Received a Few Questions from Women Who are a Little Apprehensive About Going into Another Person's Home for a Loan Signing Appointment.
Let me be the first to say: you have absolutely nothing to worry about.
There Are Many People Who Are Going to Make Money Off Every Loan Signing Appointment That Takes Place.
Why does this matter?
Because numerous people will know exactly who you are, where you are going, when you will be there, and who you will be meeting.
Think about it this way... all of the individuals who are going to profit from the loan signing appointment have a significant interest in seeing that it is completed smoothly and successfully.
Specifically, the people who make money on loan signings are the loan officer, the escrow officer, the processor, the real estate agent (if it is a purchase), and the signing service.
These licensed professionals will know every detail of the loan signing appointment.
So while you may be the only person physically there, know that there are many people in the shadows monitoring the loan signing from afar.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you're going into the home of, well, homeowners.
These people provided their address, place of work, Social Security number, and a significant amount of personal history far prior to being approved for their mortgage loan. The vetting process that the bank completes in advance of the loan signing appointment provides a level of security and assurance that people you are going to meet are responsible, credible individuals.
Literally thousands of mortgage home loans get signed every single night across the country — and many of those signings are completed by women. Many of my best notary loan signing agents are women and, after over 10 years of working with them, have yet to experience any issues.
While you can absolutely recommend other places to sign loan documents (such as a coffee shop or restaurant), be sure to read my blog on how to organize loan signings locations for the most comprehensive breakdown of how the scheduling process occurs. I would be remiss if I didn’t say that most loan signings occur at the borrower's home.
The reason for this is quite simple: borrowers are usually available the evenings — just like you are. Which is exactly why they will more often than not request that their loan signing appointment take place at home.
But as you've learned in this blog, that is in no way a cause for worry.
As a Female Notary Public Loan Signing Agent Walking into a Loan Signing Appointment, You are Not Alone.
There are many people who are excited and eager to see you execute what is perhaps the most critical part of the real estate transaction process. Borrowers are closing on their home, mortgage professionals are about to make make commission money...
And so are you.
