Re: July & August Closers

I'm going for another. Looking to change schools for my kids with a better yard and neighborhood. Will just rent out our old house.

 

  • Purchase Price:  $182,000
  • Property: Single story ranch, 1582 sq/ft + 1540 sq/ft finished daylight basement.
  • Submitted offer on: 6/1/2012
  • Signed Purchased contract on :6/5/12
  • Type of Loan: FHA
  • Loan Rate: 3.50%
  • Loan Application submitted:  5/28/2012
  • Loan approved: 5/29/2012

Traditional seller also. Contributing $3500 to closing and home warranty. Haven't done appraisal yet and am expecting it to come back in the 170's so there will probably be another change in terms soon.
