7/7/16- Citi website says that closing has been scheduled for 7/19/16 (originally scheduled for 7/29/16 in our contract)
7/7/16- Citi called our insurance agent directly and requested a new Declarations page with the new closing date
7/8/16- Pre walk through scheduled with builder for this upcoming Monday, final walk through scheduled with builder on day of settlement
7/8/16- online Naca file says that file is in underwriting (I’m guessing this is for final approval)
**we are just anxiously waiting for the loan to be cleared and to receive our closing disclosure, and final clear to close (CTC). Considering that our closing has been moved up 10 days we are just waiting to see how this will all play out**July 8, 2016 at 7:42 pm #33175
7/8/16- NACA webfile- Lender: commitment letter, additional conditions rider, 1008 transmittal summary, underwriting clear preclose to begin
7/8/16- Logged into Citi website and it says mortgage approved, commitment letter mailed 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
*I think these are the final loan documents, because we received the first three documents before but it was for the conditional approval*
Looks like we are actually on track to close EARLY with NACA! WOW!!! 🙂 Way to start the weekend!July 12, 2016 at 3:48 pm #33211
7/11/16- Pre walk through with builder completed to create punch list
7/12/16- Lender: clear to close pending….verification of employment
7/12/16- NACA processor sent a Change of Circumstances notice for us to sign off on to correct the loan amount on the application, signed and sent to counselor
*as you could imagine, we are a week from closing, extremely anxious and just ready for everything to fall in place, not sure if they will check our credit again or how they will verify closing funds (possibly by requesting the transaction history of bank accounts?), thinking that we can’t turn on utilities until given CTC- but need more guidance on that, waiting for closing disclosure to be delivered, wondering how soon we can go get our certified check for closing (possibly right after receiving the closing disclosure, when we know the exact amount or the day of closing?)*July 12, 2016 at 3:55 pm #33213
Trying not to become a member of the “closing crazies” as Tim calls them! LOL. Perhaps you can assist with some of the questions above, Tim?July 12, 2016 at 4:17 pm #33214TTrumbleMember
Based on the 28-day contract-to-close timeline you are somewhere between 4 and 10 days from closing. Sorry I can’t be more specific. Normally, the verbal VOR means you are at Day 24 and the CTC would be issued tomorrow. However, that Change of Circumstance means a setback because of a required reissue of the Closing Disclosure.
The bank does do their own pull of your credit file, but that has happened by now.
Wait till you get the CTC to get utilities turned on. The law requires three days between CTC and closing, so you’ll have plenty of time.
Your counselor should be in touch with you with the final figure on how much to bring to the closing table the day of or day after the CTC.
I don’t think it’s going to be the whole ten days. My best GUESS… that’s GUESS… (did I say GUESS?) is you are six or seven days from signing on the dotted line and jingling those keys! Early next week you get the most enjoyable case of writer’s cramp you’ll ever have! 🙂
Keep us updated!

dreamhomeDMV, All I can say, you are extremely lucky.
My appraisal was done in early June, 2.5 weeks before yours. And we still don’t have it from the bank.
I call every day every 20 minutes for the last 5 weeks (all conditions are addressed).
No progress with the appraisal yet. And it is not clear whether any progress will be ever.July 12, 2016 at 9:11 pm #33230
@FirstTimeHO I can only imagine how you feel. We have been told that our process is moving quicker than usual, but there have been moments of some serious stress and worry. We had an issue with our appraisal report as well. It was conducted on a Monday, I made sure I was present for it so that I could meet the appraiser. It was not submitted until the following Wednesday, so a week and a half delay. We were extremely frustrated and the bank was continuously contacting the appraiser as well to submit the report. I finally called my realtor and asked her to give me the contact info for the appraiser (he called her to set up the appointment). I called him and asked when the report was going to be submitted and he said he was extremely busy and blah blah blah. Needless to say the appraisal was submitted shortly after. I understand your frustration. This is definitely an eye opening experience. People say “calm down, don’t stress, your worrying for nothing, it will all work itself out” but because it’s such a big purchase you can’t help but to…especially when there is THOUSAND’s of dollars on the line of YOUR personal income. The workbook and the counselor’s try to prepare you the best they can, but there are some questions that just go unanswered for days at a time, and that is probably the most frustrating part. That is why I’m committed to sharing our story, so that other members can see what the process is like (albeit a short one) and how we were feeling at that moment. I try to follow the contract timeline, but it would be helpful if there was more info given. I attended the purchase workshop and while the info given was good, I am definitely thankful for the NACA forum and Google search is my best friend.
I sincerely hope you get some answers soon.July 14, 2016 at 1:54 pm #33268

Question about Closing Disclosure:
So I received my closing disclosure 2 Friday’s ago & the title company confirmed a date/time for that Tuesday. Monday came and we never received the clear to close and then of nowhere there were all these conditions so we had to reschedule the closing date. On Citi website they have a closing date, what are the odds of this happening?July 18, 2016 at 10:03 am #33301TTrumbleMember
As I noted on one of your other posts, you cannot go by what you see on the Citi website. The only thing that matters is what is in your NACA webfile. Additionally, that date is only an estimated closing date anyway. You can only count on the closing date for certain once you have received the Clear to Close.
