Still no word yet (so much for 24 hours, eh?). Still no answer from my agent on my (repeated) question of whether or not the buyer is still trying to work on conventional financing, if the underwriter still says no on the FHA loan.
So, last night I texted the buyer. Asked her to let me know if she hears anything because my agent is out of the country and probably won't get me the message right away. Then I went ahead and asked her if she was still working on trying for a conventional loan if this FHA falls through. She is not. She said she does not qualify because she had a short sale almost 4 years ago, and is not past that time for it not to be considered. Poor lady, she said she is so stressed she can't eat or sleep. I said we have the same thing going on on our end, except it feels double because we are trying to sell and buy at same time. It's no fun.
Well, at least now I know. I'll bet my agent has already known this info......
Hopefully we will hear today and not have to spend another weekend with no answer.
