Your Loan Is Approved, No It Isn't, Yes It Is, No It Isn't

This is so true. Not out of the woods until someone hands you the keys to your new home. 

Original content by Dave Halpern

Here's another reason buyers need a professional Realtor in Louisville, and frankly anywhere;

Realtors understand the language the mortgage brokers and loan officers use when they give status updates.

It's amazing how many times the buyer can be told they are approved for the loan but then be told there's a problem or the underwriters need one more thing.

Here are signs the buyers are NOT approved yet for their loan:

  • "Congratulations! You're pre-approved!" That means you're not approved yet.
  • "Congratulations! You're approved! Now we're sending it to underwriting." Translation: You're not approved yet.
  • "Congratulations! You're approved with conditions." Translation: You're not approved yet.
  • "Congratulations! You're approved! We just need one more thing." Translation: You're not approved yet.
  • "Congratulations! You're approved! We're just waiting for clear to close." Translation: You're not approved yet.

The word "approved" has very little practical meaning

Your Realtor will work closely with you and your loan officer. Your Realtor will understand what the real status is. Your Realtor will help manage the roller coaster of updates. If needed, your Realtor will put the right pressure on the loan officer to get things done and to reveal what's really going on with your loan.

Isn't that the truth!  I only wish that the general public knew.
