If it were me, I'd ask to meet the top 5 agents in the office to interview them.
Not many people do this, but there needs to be a connection I believe in addition to the competence level of the professional. Tom Hinz www.shortsaletosell.com thinz@apexgroupus.com ... more

I have a few ideas in mind (W. Orange is one town you might want to consider)..............but would want to ask a few more questions before offering more suggestions.

Do you want a single family home, or would you consider a town home?

Have you come up with an amount for property taxes that you're comfortable with? (as I am sure you know, NJ has rather high taxes!).

HOw long of a commute can each of you tolerate?

Do you have a style preference? (ranch, split, bilevel, colonial?)

Are you ok with 3 bedrooms/1.5 baths?......... need a basement...... or is no basement ok?

Feel free to email me your answers, and I'd be happy to reply with some towns that could work for you.........I have lived and worked in my area all my life (Essex County), so I know this area very well.

Best wishes, and I look forward to hearing from you!

answered:
Every USDA office is running off of different turnaround times. I've done USDA loans all around the country and completion times run anywhere from 5 business days to over 30 days. But usually when the lender submits it to USDA that particular office will give an estimated time or else they say they they are currently approving files submitted on X date.

Your loan officer and realtor should be communicating closely on this so they can plan on closing or on moving the date back if necessary. You should have your loan officer or the processor call USDA to get a status update since the shutdown is now over. Things have undoubtedly been delayed.

In the meantime for you personally, don't set up any movers, the cable guy, or any furniture deliveries until you get the clearance to close.

Good luck!

no worries, even if you do not make it on time, the lender can and will quickly re-issue you your commitment again if it is needed- especially if IT is THEIR fault, which sounds to me like it is....... same goes for the interest rate, likely they will still lock it, and there wont be any issues- I would know, same thing happened to my own home purchase... slow slow slow bank processor in my case. ... more

Congratulations and sincere wishes of health and wellness to carry you on this new venture of life for you and family :) In my experience, the $2800 judgment should not deter your abilities to move forward with deed recording, acceptable mortgage and purchase.

I have a few contacts that I can recommend, as well as further questions... I can help guide you on how to independtly resolve the judgement.

Kind regards,

Judith Amorim Dias
