Mortgage Closer

Mortgage Closer job overview

A mortgage closer assembles, inspects, and prepares all critical documentation needed to complete the real estate mortgage loan process. The loan closer works with lenders to evaluate and verify that all terms and closing conditions for the mortgage loan have been satisfied and then initiates the transfer of funds from the buyer to complete the transaction. Mortgage closers typically work full time in an office at a lending institution such as a bank or credit union, but can also be employed by smaller financial institutions such as a mortgage company or mortgage brokerage.
