HOW DID YOU GET THROUGH BOA SO FAST? I’VE BEEN READING THAT THERE ARE DELAYS. ANY WORDS OF ADVICE?January 24, 2020 at 3:16 pm #650112BLESSEDMember
I am very happy for you in your “forever home!” I have been waiting to see a closing that didn’t take two months. This is outstanding news! God Bless you and your family!January 24, 2020 at 3:34 pm #65018outrenthomeMember
@vonny2421 I think it’s because I had a rockstar mortgage counselor to work on my application. Mickie was amazing and when my application was moved on to Bank of America, I only had 2 super simple conditions to resolve, one of them was about correcting a date of when I moved out of an old apartment a few years ago. The other I forgot what it was but was another very simple one too.
Also my realtor was super pushy so she made everything move around fast. If you need a NACA certified outside realtor in the Dallas-Fort Worth area look up Alecia Smith, she got everything done, fast!May 25, 2020 at 8:12 pm #68466HaulinCubes91Participant
Mickie is my Mortgage Counselor! She is great. I have to close by 06/01, hoping shes going to be able to rush our file!May 26, 2020 at 11:12 am #68473Kristopher FraleyParticipant
A rock solid mortgage counselor definitely helps things run a little smoother… Especially with the significant lender delay’s these days…
Congratulations! I am happy to hear you found your forever home!!!May 26, 2020 at 1:13 pm #684782BLESSEDMember
