Lowes Approval - Day After Closing on a New House

Hey all,

 

I haven't been as active on here lately, but I've been trying to catch up on everything. DW and I closed on our new house yesterday, and once we verified everything was good to go with the title and mortgage company, I hit up Lowes. I decided I might as well hang on to some cash and use the 0% for 24 months that they're running now. I applied from my phone and was instantly approved for $6,000. I called into credit solutions right after the application and asked for $20k and was countered at $17k. It took about 10 minutes total from inital approval to hanging up with credit solutions.

Super Congrats on your new home and your Lowes approval!!! Smiley Very Happy

 

$17,000 in 10 minutes is good money when you can get it.

I have no doubt that it will come in handy now that you own

a piece of Americana. You should be very proud. Very well done! Smiley Very Happy

 

Congrats again on your success. Thanks so much for sharing! Smiley Very Happy

Congrats on the approval / CLI / home purchase!  I'd suspect a new grill is in order too Smiley Tongue.

Thanks everyone! DW and I are really excited. Luckily the house we bought is move-in ready, so everything we're doing is really a facelift and we're going to do everything slowly over the 20 days from closing to moving day.

We actually had the best sellers possible. They left us a grill, two couches we liked, a fire pit we liked, and even had a "welcome" basket waiting for us with wine, glasses, etc...
