Keep the prayers, positive thoughts, fingers crossed and good energy coming!! We received another update on the house this week. It looks like bank #2 is ready to hand over an approval letter. Bank #1 has to redo the BPO (appraisal) because the first one expired. As long as there isn't a significant change in the value of the property, we could have approval letters in a few weeks. As I have learned in the almost 7 months of waiting for the short sale to go through, nothing is as they say. However, we are holding out hope that we may receive the best Christmas gift of all - a house!!!
