Our mission and passion is to make the closing process easier, smoother, and less stressful — even in a pandemic. We are following CDC and Dane County guidelines as we continue to return to more normal closings.

Following the June 2, 2021 Health Department guidance, we are no longer requiring masks. We encourage and appreciate masks and urge those who have not been vaccinated to continue wearing a mask, as recommended by the CDC.

Closing Procedures:

Masks Encouraged and not Required: Homestead is following CDC and Dane County guidelines allowing fully vaccinated guests and staff to enter without their mask. We respectfully request that anyone who has not been fully vaccinated please continue to wear their mask to protect those around you who cannot get vaccinated.

If you prefer your closing officer wears a mask during your closing, we will gladly accommodate your request.

Closing Room, Digital, or Drive-Up Closing:  You can sign your documents in our closing room or from your car as a “drive-up closing.” Realtors and lenders are welcomed at the closing! We may limit the closing room to 8 people. On nice days, we also offer West Side closings at outside tables.

We can also accommodate a fully digital, on-line, Remote Online Notary closing for sellers and certain buyers. On-Line closings are generally not yet available for loans (check with your lender).

Health and Safety: Our closing rooms are sanitized after every closing and have HEPPA air purifiers running at all times. We offer hand sanitizer and wipes, and take every precaution to keep you safe and comfortable.

We are excited to safely return to something close to normal!

Covid-19 Agreement:

Please do not come to closing if you have any symptoms or risks associated with Covid-19.  We can make alternative, remote signing arrangements.  Do not come to closing if:

  1. You have had a cough, flu symptoms, or fever higher than 100 in the last 10 days.
  2. You have been around anyone showing symptoms of Covid-19 in the last 14 days.
  3. You have travelled internationally in the last 14 days.
  4. You or anyone in your household has tested positive for Covid-19 and have had any symptoms in the last 14 days.

We look forward to seeing you at closing!

Lots of Options for a Safe Closing

Homestead is back in the closing room!

Our mission and passion is to make the closing process easier, smoother, and less stressful — even in a pandemic. We offer a number of options for a safe, smooth, and easy closing.

Closing Procedures:

Closing Room or Drive-Up Closing:  You can sign your documents in our closing room or from your car as a “drive-up closing.” We abide by the current Dane County order, which limits office capacity to 50%. This means up to 5 people, including the closing officer, in a room. On nice days, we also offer West Side closings at outside tables.

Call When You Arrive:  When you arrive, wait in your car or outside and call us at 608-467-4600 to let us know you are here.  We will let you know when your closing room is ready or, if you choose to close from your car, bring documents out to you.

Masks: We require all clients and customers to wear masks in our office. We can provide masks to those who don’t have their own. For those uncomfortable or unwilling to wear a mask, we offer drive-up closings.

Our closing rooms are set up for social distancing with plexiglass dividers. We have HEPPA air purifiers in each room, we sanitize all surfaces frequently, we offer hand sanitizer and wipes, and we do not provide food and beverages (we hope our signature bread and cookies will be back soon).

We are excited to slowly and safely return to something closer to normal!

Covid-19 Agreement:

Please do not come to closing if you have any symptoms or risks associated with Covid-19.  We can make alternative, remote signing arrangements.  Do not come to closing if:
