Re: OMG!!!! I GOT MY FHA PRE-APPROVAL!!!!!

Everything is working out - I'm hoping to close by the end of April.  My house appraised for $28k below the loan amount I was intending on taking out and about $60k below what I expected it to.  We fought the appraisal and got it up another $8k.  Still had to ask for the price reduction.  Just saying, the appraisal can surprise you so be  conservative in your offer.
