Hallelujah! Our finances have been elevated! What essential documentation did the bank ask us for this week to reach these dizzying, dazzling heights?
- Since the stamped, signed receipt we provided from prepayment of our real estate taxes was not acceptable, we obtained a verification from the County Assessor that our tax balance was zero.
- Since Central Document Review only now discovered a gap in the 35 page document the bank had requested and received two months ago, we provided the missing page 19.
- Since the 20 page document verifying our homeowners insurance was not complete enough, we submitted a copy of the premium payment.
The net result is we have been escalated by the regional sales manager to the fast-track! No one will say exactly what that means, and I question the logic of the bank telling we are being fast-tracked after the timeline for approval has already been exceeded, but you gotta’ love life in the fast lane. Can you feel the whiplash?
With the weekend starting I don’t expect any new action from the bank, but with today being 9/11, and with Rosh Hashannah almost upon us, it is a good time to slow down, give remembrance and give thanks. So whether it is Stevie Wonder or the Red Hot Chili Peppers who fire your soul, join us in wishes for peace and a good year ahead.
