I never wait too long - if it doesn't get done by the other agent in an appropriate time, I do it myself

I have a business to run and no one stops me from running it and moving on.

Lately it has been the appraisals holding up the financing and delaying the closing. Since these are arm's length it is hard to apply pressure or force.

Hi Hella - We had one last year because the underwriter wanted a copy of a marriage license. Really.

Yes, sometimes patience is a virtue.

I can only remember 1 case where I literally was the only person that would go pick up an FHA appraisal at a previous lender. It was only 4 miles away (this was before email) & I had to go get it because the lender 'didn't feel' like mailing it or giving it to the other new LO.

Underwriter who was so slow, she should have been visited by an undertaker.

Generally the thing keeping mine from closing is an offer that was too low.

Yes. I sent a demand to the buyers agent and copied my escrow officer advising that we are not closing until buyers agent provides (1) document and (2) document.  I had them within the hour and we closed that day.

Right now, it's the buyer getting their loan!  Bank screwed things up at the 11th hour.  CD is a week overdue.
