Another Short Sale Update

This week was the last of the inspections.  The house initially failed a WDO (wood destroying organisms) inspection.  We went out and fixed what was necessary to pass and the re-inspection was yesterday.  It was a FAIL.  Due to miscommunication we missed an area that needed repairing. So, my husband and son went back out to the house and completed the repair.  Today, we hand another re-inspection and we PASSED!! 

 All inspections, credit reports, W-2's and letters of explanations are in the process of being submitted to the underwriter.  Wow.... I am very excited on the inside but definitely cautious until we get confirmation of our closing date which is tentatively scheduled for NEXT FRIDAY!!!   Here we go... a week of anticipation and prayer that all goes as planned.

I am off to Lowe's  to get boxes for packing!

Lisa, Hang in there. We bought our last house on a owner contract as it would not take a bank loan. It took four months to clear everything. But it was worth it. We purchased a 180,00 home for 112,000. We worked hard to get it ready for a bank loan and two years later we applied and have a mortgage at 5.25. This was 12 years ago. Even with the mortgage slump the house is worth 250,000. You can do this. I am so excited for you.

What is a Short Sale? said...

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to learn, but I truly thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you might repair in the event you werent too busy searching for attention.
