I think your blame is mis-placed. Realtors do not order appraisals. The lender does. All the Realtor typically does is let the seller know when the appraiser is coming by the house. Most appraisers have the realtor key box thing that lets them in, so nobody needs to be home anyway. I'd ask your loan officer....because your Realtor has nothing to do with scheduling the appraisal or the timely receipt of an appraisal.
I am glad the appraisal came in yesterday (24 hours late) and wasn't delayed until next week as you thought originally. Are you still having to delay your closing 2 weeks?
Actually, it should have been done on the 10th🙁 Not sure about closing, goal is still for Friday, but it would take a miracle for that to happen. Still have to get thru final UW so not sure yet that it even will happen😩 Never know till we sign on the dotted line! Hopeful though
They should be able to make Friday, that's 5 days away. U/W doesn't take that long. Is that your original close date or a later date?
I all the years I've used him (close to 20 now) - he has only missed twice and I've had hundreds of closings with him....I think you have a very good shot of closing on time unless something unexpected happens.
