i FIND THIS ODD. wHAT STATE ARE YOU IN? (oops) I am in Texas and once Chase approved our file they told us 2 days for USDA to sign off and in less than 2 days it was done.
HMMMMM wonder if it is sitting on someones desk signed off on but under her coat or something???
The Chase part took 24 hours then said the standard to USDA as always 2 days. Maybe countrywide is different.
You can do what I do when I do not have answers that satisfy my OCD brain .....I would call our local USDA office myself and ask questions (mainly about would I be approved) (I freaked out about our approval while we were waiting on our house to sell because they would not give me an answer without being full on ready to buy, even though we had pre-approval I could not shake feeling like something would hold us back) I would call USDA and say "my credit score is 680 here are the bad things on credit do you think USDA will approve me" then I would call again a couple days later and try to get a different person and get their opinion. I could not sleep so I botherd USDA, I bothered our broker, I bothered my realtor LOL I got them all gifts for putting up with me.
Point is find out which office is signing off and call yourself and say hey whats the deal? I am about to be homeless please help me.
