Re: Short sale WRITTEN approval is in!!!

Initially we were scheduled for Aug 14, but then the bank countered for July 23... And didn't even send written approval until yesterday, the 31st. So, I'm hoping the Sept 12 closing holds up.

Re: Short sale WRITTEN approval is in!!!

Wow I feel lucky!  I got an answer back on my offer in 30 days.  The sellers bank wants a closing no later than Sept 10.  Today finds me filling out all 45 pages of application docs.

Re: Short sale WRITTEN approval is in!!!

Unfortunately, I went under contract way before they changed the short sale approval times to 30 days. I sign my papers tomorrow!!!

Re: Short sale WRITTEN approval is in!!!

Did they run a new credit report? Did you have to provide proof of employment and all that other stuff again? Or did just bank statements do?

Re: Short sale WRITTEN approval is in!!!

I kept everything updated with my LO as far as bank statements and check stubs. As they came in, I faxed them over to her.  She pulled my credit again back in June because of an issue I had with a re-aged collection hitting my reports, but I filed a complaint with the BBB and the CA removed it immediately and my score rebounded.  The LO pulled my credit again when I told her everything was cleared up, which are the scores in my signature.

 

I expect them to pull my credit again before close, but I'm definitely not worried.  I have had 4 paid collections and a paid IRS tax lien removed from my reports, and also had 2 open collections from a car accident that were paid and the CA never changed it on Equifax. So, if anything, my credit has become better.  Even so, I'm looking at a 3.5% rate, which is great.

 

Good luck with your short sale!  I wanted to throw in the towel soooo many times, but everyone here kept me strong.  Just a few more days and I'll find out if my dream comes true!
