I went to see a home yesterday and then immediately put an offer on it, without even approval for the Mortgage.
I actually went to see two homes. The first was a typical short sale…Home not clean, carpet was Destroyed by pet stains and chewed marks…I would absolutely have to have it removed and retiled and a wierd and suspicious water stain all over the ceiling.
Second home had all the “upgrades” and was meticulously maintained.
Both the same price. So I offerred on the second one.
At 7 pm my Mortgage broker called and told me I was getting what they call a “Priority Approval” for the Mortgage I was requesting. I am not sure if this is a good or bad thing, but maybe Anne knows.
Unfortunately the home is a short sale. So….Even if I offer the full purchase price, I may not get it.
It really is a perfect size for me and has the things I was looking for. Tile throughout the first floor (No more Dog hairy carpets!!!!!!!) tons and tons of counter space in kitchen. A gated and safe neighbourhood…
And My Payments would be less than my rent.
Now….that all that was done so quickly…I now must sit and wait. Short Sales are Messy Messy.
And Yes Anne It is with WF. the former name of that place has always done so well for me that I decided to continue that there.
