Re: Do I Qualify

Are you going FHA?  If so, then the 7k is enough for the 3.5% down payment.  FHA doesn't have reserve requirements but its good you have them.  What are the taxes on the property?  Association due?

Annual Taxes: $1632

Annual Insurance: $687

I've already been pre-approved and our offer was accepted about 2 weeks ago. We are now worrying about underwriting. The house passed inspection last week and our LO has ordered an appraisal. How long does underwriting usual take? We are scheduled to close on Oct. 23rd and we've already put in our notice on our rent house.
