Hey John,

A couple quick answers for you:

a) An appraisers hands are tied when working with condo's. Even if it is a detached condo, it goes on a separate form, and they have to be appraised with other condo's. I am not saying that the appraiser is correct, but that is the reality.

b) Navy Fed isnt really that good. They are definitely not going to fight for your value. I am a former Marine, use Navy fed for banking, but in the mortgage arena they are not great.

The other option that you DEFINITELY have is to see if you qualify for a HARP refinance. HARP refinances require no appraisal, and I can see if you qualify in about 2 minutes... Rates are the same as typical conventional. The only difference is that the appraisal is waived... Rate/Term only, no cash out allowed obviously...

Give me a call or shoot me an email and I can take care of you, or shoot you in the right direction...

But do it before this debt ceiling thing gets out of hand...

Talk to you soon,

Daniel Lehman
