Do you have a property picked out?

When do you close?


The reason I ask, is that looks pretty tight.... could be a low ball offer if your closing is far out. it is a strategy by some lenders to lowball and hope for rates to go down while you shop. if this is real, it is an awesome deal!!! Who is the lender?


less amt pd by seller 3,500 (what is this?) this is the portion of closing costs paid by the seller.... basically covering your closing costs. very typical in this market to have seller pay some costs..... but, in effect, you are really rolling it into the loan. because if the seller didnt pay 3500 in closing costs, then they would probably take 3500 less for the purchase price. make sense?

I don't have a property picked out yet...well I got this quote from a guy at suntrust...he just made the same type loan (80-15-5) to my coworker (I got the referral for this guy from him), so i would be surprised if he lowballed because he probably figures I asked my coworker his loan terms...also talked to BofA today (I bank with them) and they told me 5.6%, no pmi, with 5% down, so we'll see-they're sending me the GFE tomorrow.
