Finally did it, yeeehah!!
Ok we had bought a prop on contract. $300 down.
a 3k discount for cash within 12 months.
It took f_o_r_e_v_e_r to get it refinanced
for various reasons all coming from the
Murphy’s Law principle. First was a holiday (Labor Day)
then mortgage brokers assistant got sick for a week,
the broker was nowwhere to be found, another in that office
took our app, he was working forty other loans (so he said)
on the day of the appraisal I showed up to show her the
prop only to find the new roof job leaked (arrrrghh!!)
put on a dog and pony show for her that worked, the appraisal
came in only 1k less than requested.
So we are approved, only the designated closer for
the mortgage company is at a week long seminar, she
gets back, our paperwork from the broker is wrong,
we canned his behind,(saved us $1500) by the time we have our
paperwork right, the closer is now on vacation
for a week.
She comes back, we’re ready. Th
