Once your offer has been accepted, the excitement kicks in, and the countdown to closing begins. But before you can get your keys, you’ll want to be cautious of any roadblocks or setbacks that could cause a delayed closing and postpone your move-in date. From appraisal issues to home inspection roadblocks, there’s a lot that can go awry before finally closing on your property. So how can you avoid a delayed closing?

Just because it’s not on your credit report doesn’t mean it’s not out there. These can take days to research and get cleared,” explains Dean Tucker of Benchmark Mortgage in Boise Idaho.
