House #12: Mystery Solved

December 7, 2009 · 1 comment

In my last post about The Mini House, I mentioned that there was some confusion over whether the appraisal had ever been carried out by the buyer’s lender. The buyer’s agent told us it was completed, but considering the appraiser never called us to get access to the house, we didn’t believe it.

So, we called the mortgage broker and asked for a copy of the appraisal. Basically, he told us that the appraisal hadn’t yet been completed, but that he had spoken with the appraiser, and the appraiser was confident that there would be no issues justifying the sales price in the appraisal. Apparently, this provided the broker enough confidence that he was willing to risk the buyer’s deposit by not getting the appraisal completed before the deadline.

Anyway, we’re still waiting for the appraiser to call us to gain access to the house (we’ll happily give him the lockbox code), but at this point we’re as confident as we can be that everything is on track for an end-of-month closing…
