Buyer Can't Close! Banks Are Crazy!
You guys who have been following my saga won't believe it. We're supposed to close on Friday. To refresh you, the bank wouldn't give the buyer a loan until he changed jobs to one closer to my home because they said the commute was too far. They didn't want a letter from him stating that he was really going to live in the house as a primary residence like some of you suggested. They wanted him to transfer closer to the house. So he changed jobs. It took about a month and was not easy. He started the new job last week. Now the bank is saying they want a letter from his old job stating they will rehire my buyer if necessary. What?! The buyer has been trying to get the letter for a week. Something about one department doesn't know what the other department is doing and the guy who handles this stuff is on vacation and now Mary in the office said it would be no problem, blah, blah, blah, blah. Maybe they're not going to give him one--I don't know. But in the meantime, it hasn't gone through underwriting and they can't close and who knows if they ever will close? WHAT MORE DO THESE BANKS WANT?! BLOOD?! MY FIRST BORN?! Now I am really messed up because I had to reserve a truck, start packing, hire the horse hauler, stop doing business, hundreds of things! AGAIN!
