I think the seller's mortgage bank switch has been great for us. We are *finally* seeing movement in the short sale process. We had to supply them with some information via a form on Tuesday and today we received word that an appraiser was coming to the house on Monday for a BPO. Nothing can happen until that BPO is complete, so we are thrilled to know it is scheduled. There are still a lot of things that have to fall into place in order for us to get the house, but at least we are moving forward.
I did call the town hall today to request information on the permit needed to put a ramp on the house. It looks like that is going to be an easy process for us, with only a few days needed for approval once we own the home.
