Agents See Fewer Closing Delays

It’s been a year since new closing rules took effect and real estate agents are seeing fewer closing delays. About 8 percent of transactions are delayed now, down from about 11 percent last year. Agents are also finding it easier to get a copy of the closing disclosure, although it remains a challenge. Learn more about these trends in the latest Voice for Real Estate news video.
