It's good to have company!
Had a short sale in 2010 so I'm still keeping my fingers and toes crossed!
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.
maryellis1981: I'm just ignorant and curious...what are those dark shaded areas on the roof in your picture?
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.
I thought with short sale you have to wait 3 years, what did you do to get approval?
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!
