I haven't seen a thread for March/April closers yet, so I thought I would start one up!
I don't want to jump the gun quite yet because we're still working through the conditions on our conditional approval, but if all goes well, we'll be closing around the week of March 19th. As soon as I have all of the details about our loan, I will post them here:
So where are all of my fellow March/April closers??

YAY! I'm happy to post although I'm still under conditional approval. But; I have all the Faith that my loan will close.

I have no idea how long this process will take but I am hopeful that we may close by the end of April. We have already overcome a huge obstacle in that the house we are trying to buy was in the final stage of forclosure and set to be auctioned off 03/04/12. We just got news yesterday that they were able to extend the auction date out to 04/05/12 and that further extensions were available if needed : ) This was a huge relief because we were not able to get a response from anyone at Navy Federal (sellers bank). I wrote a few emails to the CEO and other executives and the next day we received news that they were sending paperwork to extend out the auction date.
The Lord has kept me calm through the whole process so far and I am confident that if he wants us in this house he will make it happen. I don't care how long it takes as long as we make it there : )

The builder what to see the house that i found and ask him to complete for me because FHA told use that we can't sell the house before 90 days of buying in for me..90 days will be March 16, 2012..I had to pray when i drove by and saw a forsale sign on the lawn..The lord knows best.
