We have a friend who's husband is a mortgage lender, so he is looking to see if we can get approved while still in our current house. We are hoping to not have to actually carry both houses, but we need to get approved without having a contingent loan. It looks like it will be really tight. I just hope we can sell our current townhouse before moving.
So we have a meeting with Melinda today to go over how much all of this is going to cost. That is the scariest part. My stomach is in knots just thinking about it. I hope we can get the preliminary approval before going out there. I would feel much better having that.
Wish us luck!
As I wrote this, our mortgage guy called - WE ARE PRE-APPROVED!!
