The Mortgage Process Starts.....NOW

After signing the Purchase Agreement we had to leave the next day. On July 11 we got a call from Our NVR Loan Officer to go over the loan interview and all the paperwork that she needed from us to for a VA loan. She also told us she was going to send us a packet of info that we needed to complete the loan to get the ball rolling. After a week and no package we decided to call her and we found out it was a mix up with the address and UPS so we didn't receive the package until July 24. So we completed everything and mailed on July 25 (sent overnight) on July 26 at 9:15am she emailed us that she had received our paperwork. Also she emailed us later in that day a budget letter to fill out. Now the waiting part begins.............

OAN.....We also got a call from RUG RITE  and Guardian to set up appointments we manage to schedule those on the same day Aug 2 being that we don't live in NC yet that was a big PLUS!!!!

The Beginning of Our Journey

 Ok this is my first time blogging so here it goes...

We started our house hunting online (live in Texas and wanting to relocate to NC) a few months ago searching for homes on the internet. Around July 2 we headed out to NC to meet with our realtor (which by the way was really wonderful) she took her time showing us many homes during the five days we were there. Many of the homes were ok but when we saw the Rome Model built by Ryan's Homes we fell in love with it. Although we continued to see other homes we kept coming back to the ROME so on July 8 we signed our purchase agreement put our deposit down and placed our sold sign on our lot.
