Ok so we are in escrow for a condo,problem we need to show 5000.00 in the bank for 2 months,do not have family that have that kind of money to let us do that,even though it is just money that needs to sit there while we go throught his,is there any way around this part,or could the bank say no because we do not ahve that money in there

The bank can say no right up to the close of escrow. It's important to be truthful. You can lose your deposit if they determine the loan fell through because of intentional misinformation on your part. They may not say no, but they could consider you a higher risk and give you a higher interest rate. Is it a 30 day escrow? This might be a good time to sell everything you don't really need, but do you have the time to raise it if they are requiring you have it for 2mos? I'm not trying to give you more anxiety here, just pointing out the importance of keeping everything up front. This would be a great time for your former friend to pay off what she owes you.

Yeah It Sure Would Be,we Are Trying A 30day Escrow But Our Loan Guy Said 60 Might Be Better We Have The 2000 We Need To Pay Up Front But The 5000 They Want To See Sitting In The Bank I Have No Idea How We Will Come Up With That

You sure do ,hee hee ,actually the seller said we can also rent it out as a vaction rental,he does it once in awhile for 110.00 a night which would be cool if we ever wanted to go back to the mainland to visit we could just rent it out,,,

His parents also said they will co sign on the loan if it will ehlp us get a lower interest rate,i am in total shock
July 19th, 2006, 02:48 PM
I would suggest to you to talk to mortgage brokers to get lower interest rates.Just don't stick with a bank.
You can apply online to companies and four mortgage brokers will call you and compete to get the lowest rate.
