Ok...so we called the mortgage company directly and talked to our Loan Officer there.
Because they are new, they need some legal stuff signed by NVR, broker stuff. We can't fill out the app until then. They "SHOULD" have it this week. Then it will take about a week. So we are looking at sometime in May. In the words of Charlie Brown, "UGH!". lol
Dare I hope for a YES answer before Mother's Day? Probably not. Doesn't seem to be my luck.
We also learned we can only lock in the rate at 45-50 days out with this company instead of 60. Ok. I have to trust God knows what He is doing here.
But, I can say that it has helped to have this understanding. So If they get by this Friday, It will probably be the Second week of May (knowing our luck...lol). So that's our update, if you're interested.
