Approved by automated underwriting but ???

OK, I have not done this in a while.  We are hoping to refinance to cut 1% off of our rate and cash out to pay off bills. If the mortgage broker tells you you were approved by automated underwriting, what are the things that could cause a problem?  I take it the automated system runs with your credit information, income, etc???

 

Right now I think our real hurdle is going to the appraisal. But, I don't really understand what role automated underwriting will play.  How does this whole process work nowadays?

Re: Approved by automated underwriting but ???

Usually you are run through automated underwriting when you are preapproved. Your LO runs the info you have provided him through their system to see if you can move forward. In MOST cases if your paperwork matches what you have initially told your LO when getting preapproved and your scores are there you should be okay.
