Wow, Friday, October 5 was a strange day here at the registry in Lowell. The longer you work here the better you get at predicting business volume, or so you’d think. Unfortunately, everyone knows the real estate business is down, some might even say way down. So me, I expected last Friday to be slow, very slow. After all it was the Friday before the long Columbus Day Weekend and the earlier part of the week was dead…Well, I was right before I was wrong (please, excuse the political reference). Friday morning saw very little recording activity. We only recorded 54 documents by 12:00. Yes, I prided myself in my clairvoyance, “Yep, experience is the best teacher” I thought…”and I’VE got the experience”. Then all of a sudden BOOM!, as John Madden would say…the place went wild… BOOM! DHL arrived with over fifty mortgages…then BOOM! five sets of closing groups descended on the registry at once…then BOOM! the regular title examiners began to line up at the recording counter…BOOM! BOOM!…In all we recorded 331 documents on Friday, October 5 (did I mentioned it was the day before a long weekend?). Yes, 331 is not really a big day, but 277 of those documents were recorded in the last few hours before closing…Truthfully, I prefer to be busy, but that day turned out to be a boomer.
