Re: November and December Closers

So true. It's great to have company these exciting and nervous times.

 

We locked and are approved for a 30 yr fixed conventional at 3.25%, but we still have the option of chaning the product to any of the following before 10 days to closing.

7/1 ARM  - 2.75% with 1% lender credit
7/1 ARM - 2.5% with no lender credit
10/1 ARM - 3% with 1% lender credit
10/1 ARM - 2.75% with no lender credit 
30 Year Fixed - 3.25%
 
Any credit in cash is always good, so we are still undecided which product to go with..

Re: November and December Closers

From what I recall it is fading and discoloration because the house faces north,  The inspector said the roof was in good shape though replaced within the last 10 years.

Re: November and December Closers

Mary,

I thought with short sale you have to wait 3 years, what did you do to get approval?

Re: November and December Closers

Yes that's what most lenders were saying but I was able to get a commitment from a mortgage company that works with my local credit union.  It's a conventional loan and I am putting down 20%.  My middle score is also at 712 so my credit recovered pretty well.  When I closed on my short sale I only had a 60 day late and I also reaffirmed $10k of the bank's loss as a 5 year promissory note.  The LO said these two factors were helpful to my case.  I have no other lates on my credit report.  The only condition the underwriter required on my committment was that I cannot close any earlier than 11/26 which would be 2 year 3 days following the closing of my previous short sale.  There is a small chance that I could not close but my realtor feels pretty confident now that I have the mortgage commitment so I have started packing!
