I talked with him yesterday morning to tell him the news. His offer was largely accepted, just a few slight modifications. Certainly not anything we coudn't work through. Closing was scheduled for next month.
By the end of the day, I'd received a call from his friendly title rep, offering to pull the commitment and help in any way possible. Next there was a call from the appraiser asking for access to the home to complete the appraisal. I was impressed! This was taking efficiency to a whole new altitude.
But something was a little off...I hadn't received written notification that my counter was accepted. Realising that his clients may have been at work and that he may not have been able to get the signatures, I waited. After a couple of hours, I placed a call into the agent.
The message on the cell phone instructed me to state the purpose of my call. So, I left an upbeat message confirming that I had just got a call from the title company to order title and from the appraiser to do an appraisal. But, when was he planning on doing inspections...or perhaps, they had decided not to do them. Please call!
A couple of hours later, I received another call, this time from the appraiser, "Lola, I just called you a few hours ago to set up the appraisal, well the lender just contacted me and said that I needed to wait a couple of days. I'll get back to you when they decide to reschedule it. I hope I haven't caused too much inconvenience."
