I wanted to close on Saturday, but my agent says no
because the Title Company won't do it on the weekend. I can understand that,
but I'm nervous about signing via email as I'm 4 hours away.
Is there danger in doing this all online? He said the title company
will send me the docs to sign ahead of time. And if I want to come down
on the closing day, he'll set up an appointment with the Title company
after they have verified the title. If I'm going there anyway, why wouldn't
I also sign the docs there? That would make me feel a lot more comfortable.
Am I being paranoid or do I need to be careful?

Most/many of my closings are "mail away" closings with buyers signing docs from out of state. It's done all the time.

I'm assuming they could email you all the docs and you could print them out and bring them down to the title company for the closing (especially if you're coming down anyway).

Thanks for your replies. I just have not even met the
realtor in person. It makes me a bit nervous that I could sign
my property away.

I can understand your reservations.

Just to be safe, you can go here and type in his/her name to verify you are dealing with a licensed agent: DBPR: Home Page Just go under "verify a license" at the top of the page.

When we bought our home here we signed everything in PA. They sent a notary to our house and she handled everything. When we closed on property from PA a notary wasn't involved but we did the transaction via over night mail. All went fine, no need to worry from my experience.

Simple: READ everything before you sign, so you know what you're signing.

There are really only two things to be concerned about

1) is the dollar amount correct.
2) is the property description correct

If both of those are correct then the title company will take care of the rest.

Thanks for the reassurance. I am waiting to hear back from my realtor
who is apparently ignoring me. I've asked him these three questions -
1. If I'm coming down there to pick up the check, then why not sign there
as well instead of doing it by mail. That seems a simple idea.
2. What is the name and address of the title company.
3. What signature verification system does the title company use, if any?

Maybe the guy just got very busy yesterday and hasn't had a chance to
respond, but it is making me more nervous that he is not responding.
So, let me ask this question - What are my rights in terms of backing out
of this signed contract if he won't work with me some to allow me to close
perhaps on a different day or at the very least to close in person?

Do I have any rights at all after having signed with a specific closing date?
Can he force me to sign by mail ?

I didn't read either the thread title or the OP correctly.

You are the seller you have as much power as you want to exercise.

Tell your agent you want to come down, sign and get tour check at the same time.(if that's what you want to do) but you are going to have to do it Monday Thru Friday

I don't believe the closing date is a hard date unless either one of the two parties want to make it a hard date by walking.

The title company works to make sure the transaction goes smoothly but remember they are working for the seller but they act like they don't work for anyone.

It's possible that the title company is distant and that is the reason that they are pushing for a closing by mail,

If I'm selling a property I want my check at the same time I sign my name.

If I'm buying a property then I don't care because the Title Company is looking out for me
