The local lenders with whom I work will have the details regarding a property I have for sale. They know the insurance situation, the HOA financial and have all the ducks in a row. All that is needed is a qualified buyer. Ultimately, Bank of America, Wells Fargo or Chase will deny the loan in the last week of the process. Having bank B ready to roll is essential. In essence. FINANCING IS AVAILABLE and that changes the situation for the SELLER significantly.
Anyone coming into a deal with an "F" rated bank, should notice the red flags.
If you're not working with a local lender find an "A' or 'B" bank by entering your zip on city in the following link: http://www.BankingGrades.com
Best of success,
Often, sellers want to double make sure that your client is approved.
They have a loan officer they trust and rely on his professional expertise to "evaluate"
your clients' approvability, so to speak.
You don't have to work with their mortgage person.
To get the deal, it's probably better to agree to this.
However, sometimes, it's a good idea to have your buyers meet the sellers and show the approvals to the sellers directly right there and then - this way it's harder for the sellers to say no.
Most likely, they'll not require yet another approval for already approved buyers...
Hope this helps,
