Well, "she" was our Sales Rep who called my husband today to tell him the good news! The bank approved our offer, and we can now officially move forward in this process!
Three days ago, we met with our rep from the mortgage company to sign and organize all of our documents for the loan paperwork to be processed. I was fairly impressed with how smooth the meeting went. It helped that my husband was very prepared with every document copied and organized in a folder. We met for about 35 minutes and were told that we'd hear back that official word soon. We don't forsee any issues with being approved for the mortgage. We both have excellent credit (mine is slightly higher than his, if you were wondering!) and we have been extremely careful about not racking up any debt over these past four years of renting.
Tomorrow night we will be meeting with the flooring company to finalize our cabinets, countertops and carpet selections. Excited to be making these decisions!
We will have our meeting with Guardian in two weeks to talk about the electronics/technology options for our home. Personally, I'm more excited about tomorrow's meeting!!
