<<We decided to close on 4/30 -- only will have to pay $35 or so in interest up front...>>

The last couple of days in a month are usually pretty hectic at the title/closing companies, so I try to avoid them. Also, I have heard that if something comes up at the last minute and the closing gets delayed for a few days---if it gets pushed over into the next month ALL the closing papers must be re-figured, which a) means you are now hiang to pay 30 days in prepaid interest instead of 1 days and b) adds more delay and possibility for screwups.
All in all, I have found that the next-to-last week of the month is pretty good.
