Q: Do you really save money by closing at the end of the month?
A: Bringing less money to the closing makes it so appealing to homebuyers near the end of the month. In many cases, homebuyers are really strapped for cash and they are counting every penny right around closing. Closing near the end of the month can help with immediate cash need, and it can give the illusion of saving money- but you really don’t save any money in the long term, because the mortgage is still for 30 years (or 15) to the day in either case.
