Re: My USDA guaranteed thread

Just an FYI - My lender submitted my file to USDA Thursday evening (3/1) and we got it back this morning (3/5). If you don't count the weekend, it really only took 1 day. Good luck!

Strut-

 

You said you just got your file back from USDA this morning. What is your next step? Going back to lender for final and clear to close? What is your closing date?

Re: My USDA guaranteed thread

Thanks for sharing your timeline here. We are waiting for the final approval from USDA too.

 

Btw, I was wondering if the seller is Fannie Mae? It's always nice to hear when the seller is willing to fix the repairs even though you didn't ask for it. Makes the transaction easy!

 

Keep us posted. :smileyhappy:

Good luck to you, Annaliese.

 

How long has your file been with USDA? I love seeing other people's experiences!

 

My house (I think) was a foreclosure and was purchased by an investor that I am buying from.

 

But I did just get the appraisal report back. I was thinking it would be a 1 page sheet of paper that says "Your hosue is worth $xxx,xxx." I wasn't expecting it to be a book!

 

But it appraised for $2,000 more than contract price. Now I wish lender would hurry up and say ok and send to USDA!

Our LO told us he sent it Thursday and was told that we should hear back from them by Monday, which is today.  I've been checking my emails.. but none so far. What State are you from? And thanks for answering my question.  Our seller is Fannie Mae and all repairs were made which is nice! Didn't expected them to do it eventhough the contract says 'as is'.

Re: My USDA guaranteed thread

The USDA (REO?) system was the last hurdle for me, the only thing I'm now waiting on is the final paperwork to be drafted. I would have been able to close today but the damn title office was closed to move into a new building!!!
