The lender will want to know what other income do you have that can be counted on or is that all there is? They will want to see how you plan to make payments for 20-30 years. Lenders sell these loans to FANNIE and they have rules that lenders must follow to be able to sell the loans and not have to tie up there banks money for 20-30 years. ... more

I am assuming you obtained the appraisal as part of the mortgage process. Due to new guidelines in how appraisals are ordered, this kind of thing is becoming much more common. If there were comparable sales that closed within the past 6 months, within a 1 mile radius of the home you are purchasing, that were not used, you might have a chance challenging the appraisal. If that is not the case, then whatever anyone says will not make a difference. The appraiser has to review your contract of sale, so they know what you are paying. Unless there is some kind of error on the appraisal, where they did not adjust appropriately, had the wrong room count, square footage, or whatever, that would make the appraisal inaccurate, I doubt anything can be done. Even if the seller tries to go out and get a different appraisal, your bank is not going to use it. What are the details of your transaction? How much are you putting down? If this drastically effects your deal, you have the choice of coming up with extra money, or backing out of the deal if the seller does not want to reduce their price. ... more
