This new program offered by our Prosperity Home Mortgage is awesome and by the time our client got to the closing table, they were already funded. Closing was super quick and no delays.


At the Ebby Halliday Companies we’re proud to offer Rapid Close, a seamless signing experience that allows you to electronically sign most closing documents before closing. Rapid Close is offered through our affiliated mortgage company, Prosperity Home Mortgage.

With Rapid Close, borrowers can sign all eligible documents electronically prior to closing, leaving you with a limited amount of paperwork to sign at the closing table. Rapid Close saves time, allowing you more time to review documents and ask questions before closing – and gets you to the finish line faster!

5 Simple Steps to Rapid Close

Get the Invitation: You’ll receive an email to access your closing package prior to your scheduled closing date.

Review Documents: After a quick account setup, you’ll be able to review all of your loan documents prior to the closing date.

eSign Documents: On the day of closing, you can electronically sign all eligible documents in advance of your in-person meeting.

Documents are Sent: The e-signed documents are then shared with the mortgage consultant and all necessary parties.

In-Person Meeting: Sign the remainder of your documents and complete the closing in-person!

Prep Your Home for Fall

Quote


Cozy autumn evening on a modern designed patio

Cool breezes and colder months call for necessary upkeep. Now is a good time to be proactive about protecting your home against cooler temperatures. Follow these steps to prepare your home for fall.

Exterior

Roof – Inspect for missing, loose or damaged shingles. Make necessary repairs to keep cold air and precipitation out.

Gutters and Downspouts – Clear leaves and debris. Check alignment to ensure water can flow through and drains away from your home and foundation.

Plumbing – If you’ve noticed issues or leaks, get them checked. Winterize pipes that are exposed outdoors.

Trees – Inspect your property for damaged branches, and trim limbs at least 2 feet from your roofline.

Interior

Heat – Inspect furnace, water heater and air ducts. Fix any issues and replace air filters.

Windows – Check for cracks, gaps, damaged trim and broken glass. Caulk, weather strip and repair as needed; the same goes for doors.

Detectors – Test and replace batteries in the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors that keep you safe.

Fire Extinguisher – Test your fire extinguisher and replace or recharge if necessary.

Backup – Have working flashlights and spare batteries for potential outages.

Attic – Check for moisture or leaks and repair immediately; same for basements, where necessary.

I Love FALL in East Texas.

Quote

This is the time of year that I savor – cooler weather, breezes, the trees turning, and watching all kinds of species of birds making the migration and resting at Cedar Creek Lake. And it is time for some fall festivals and Pumpkin patches. East Texas has some fun places to visit. Here are a few.

– Ziplining thru the New York Texas Zipline park while the trees are turning is so much fun. A couple of years ago, we had a family day here and even those who were anxious about the height up in the trees, had fun. (See our photos below).

Yesterland in Canton.

Blase Family Farm in Rockwall

– Fiddlin’ Around the Arboretum begins on Oct. 31 – Nov. 21 at the East Texas Arboretum located in Athens Texas. Local artists have decorated fiddles that will be displayed through the gardens.

– Athens Town Square – Athens Texas has a great group of people who spend alot of time and energy planning for Fall Festive decorations and then Christmas decorations around the Athens Courthouse town square. If you want a place to go for some great couple and family pics, come make a drive to Athens Texas. Thank you Keep Athens Beautiful for all you do.

The DFW area has many places to visit with pumpkin displays. Send me an email and I will be happy to send you a pdf with some fantastic ideas.

9/11 – A Day We Won’t Forget

Quote

Most of us, including our children, will not forget this day. It started out as a normal day. We got up, got ready for work, dropped our children off to school and went to work. That day, I was walking around the track at my children’s school before going to open up my shop, a local music and book store. When I heard the news, I immediately went to my shop and turned on the news and saw nothing but chaos and catastrophe in our country. The utter horror and despair that we all saw will not ever leave any of us. I felt personally attacked, did you? We grieved. However – we came together as ONE, people and nation. We did what we could to help. We donated time and money to relief and rescue efforts. We went to houses of worship and prayed. Our world changed. We came up with new ways of doing things. We persevered, became stronger and better. Wouldn’t you say that we are going through something similar right now? We should pay attention to that and we should come together as ONE people and nation who can adapt to some new ways of doing things, persevere, become stronger and better.
