Dear family first I want to thank each one of you for your prayers and support! It means more to me than I can express! Today I got a phone call that the bank WILL do the price reduction to meet the house appraisal! I thank God for that! They DO however want us to absorb more closing costs in the end. Which will be tight but hopefully we will be able to do! So it looks like now I actually will get the house! What a crazy ride this has been! I can't wait! Now we just have to finish escrow and the time frame will be very close to when I will be forced to leave my rental home! So good news all in all and I can actually breath now! I had to let you all know! Thanks for being a "family" to me! To God be the Glory! God bless you all!

To God be the glory! Now I just need to get through the escrow! No more suprises I pray!

Have you already done your inspection. If so, there should be nothing else to worry about. I had a friend who bought a mobile home about three years ago, I just found out that they did not do an inspection?? She told me that they could not afford it. I asked if she could have worked that expense into the mortgage and she said she didn't know,,,I wouldn't have bought a mobile home without it, way more risky that a house, in some cases.. they are now having some big problems. dryer hookup will pop on and off when using the dryer, sheet vinyl in the kitchen floor was not put down correctly and is coming apart, plumbing problems in the bathroom. I have noticed that their doors, especially front/back were cut crooked and too short…they are now spending $$$$ on heating…She has a wonderful husband, but not very handy.

that's great!! I don't know if this is your first house, but I will never forget when we bought our first one, fantastic feeling!

It is a wonderful feeling! I just pray there won't be any more suprises! Its very tough to buy a home in this market! Its been a lot of ups and downs! I've been through five bids and two escrows! Last escrow inspection reviled problems with foundation! This one has already passed inspection and appraisal so we are well on our way! By Gods grace! I would have had only a month left before I need to be out of my current home and time was running out for me! If I would have had to rent I would have lost all my house money on getting into a rental! Thank God I don't have to do that now! I'm so greatful to God for this blessing!

So true! I actually got sick with worry! I say praise God and please continue to pray that there will be NO more suprises! Whew! What a terriable long tough expirence this has been! Five bids five houses and two escrows and FINALLY its actually comming true! Last escrow we had a problem during inspection! It reviled foundation problems. This time the inspection is good! All that's done now and we are well on our way! The closing is going to be higher but I think we will make it! I'm so greatful! Thank you so much for your prayers and kind support! Now we just need to finish up escrow! To God be the glory!

can you tell I'm happy?

realsis77 2011-03-19 11:56:44 -0500 Report

Can you believe it! Although the closing costs will be more its going to be wonderful! We will barely squeeze by but I think we will make it! Please continue to pray that there will be NO more suprises! Now we just have escrow! What a long crazy mess its been! Five houses and two escrows! Just in the nick of time! To God be the Glory! I still can hardly believe it! I am so suprised they came back with an answer so soon! I think the extra closing costs are due to the large price reduction! I'm very happy! Thank you for being a awsome friend!
