We sent ours to Rural Development on August 9th, they were running about 10 days behind. We received our loan committment on August 20th, then the file went back to Underwriting for 24 hours and then Quality Review for 48 hours and we got the clear to close on Thursday, August 23rd. We are closing tomorrow - August 28th.
I think I can post here now...
It was a short sale, it took the bank almost 3 months to give the ok. Now we're going for the appraisal, and I already got conditions from underwriting... So Hopefully everything will go fine with appraisal and we can close this sooner!
Edit2: Appraisal came back fine, no repairs needed. Closing will be defined, probably in the next 2 weeks. (Very HAPPY!)
You guys don't know how long I have waited to post to this board! I contemplated waiting until AFTER I closed to post just because there have been soooo many speed bumps, but I have faith now that we are closing!
