Fridays are very busy in real estate law offices, especially at the end of the month, and especially in the summer. The last Fridays in June, July, and August tend to be the busiest days of the year. If you are closing on one of those days, you will likely not get your keys or cheque until later in the day; banks are just as busy as we are, and everyone being that hectic means that no one gets prioritized. Worse, if for some reason your deal doesn’t close, it will be extended until Monday. The best piece of advice I can give anyone about picking a closing date is to pick the middle of the week in the middle of the month. You will get far more attention, your closing will be smoother, and in a worst case scenario, it will only be extended by one day.
