I received an email from my loan officer today advising me of a couple of things:
1). RH confirmed the townhouse will be ready for closing on January 15, 2013
2). Final appraisal can be done once construction and lanscaping are complete. That's an addt'l $75-$100 added to my GFE (good faith estimate).
3). I can now lock my rate as I am 28 days away from closing. I can email my LO daily after 930 am EST to inquire about rates
4). Unfortunately, the bank is making me choose another settlement attorney. I was going to use the atty that RH/NVR uses because I more than likely would have been able to get my keys the same day as closing. Guess that's not happening...so back to finding someone suitable.
So, I guess I need to start packing and arranging movers, huh? Perhaps that can wait til after the holiday.
