Re: July & August Closers

I am just sitting here trying to be patient waiting on whether the manual underwriting approves me with the child support snafu (sp? LOL).  UGH this is the most stressful thing EVER!  I just want to close.  I want the keys.  I don't want to worry about this anymore.  My daughter starts kindergarten in 27 days and I have no clue what school I need to register her for because i'm worried the loan might not go through and then we won't know where the heck we're going to live.  Trying to think positive here.  Send me some positive vibes PLEASE!

Building a new home with Advantage Homes, $28,000 in builder credit, builder paying $2,500 toward pre-paid, and $7,100.00 towards closing! And the bank is paying $4000 toward closing as well!!!  Of course I will have to at a higher interest rate.  I hope that by closing, the rates drop some more, atleast down to 3.2%.  I wouldn't mind locking in at 3.7%.  Mid-Score was 653 for FHA.
