You've put all your eggs in one basket; counting on Wells.
Why don't you start PLAN B; another lender that you can use, at least as a comparrison.

How about contacting Navy Federal Credit Union, (they serve all 4 services).
Get your GFE from Wells, and get one from NFCU and compare.

Good luck and may God bless

It sound like you need to repair your credit I am not sure what your score are but there are lenders out there that will help you repair your credit and there are also credit repairs companies like lexingtonlaw.com that can help you. Also depending on your credit score you may qualify for some specific mortgage products, contact Wells Fargo they may have a program for you.

Thanks

I would advise working with an agent that has access to these types of properties and has already established a storng relationship with developers/builders. I work with several agents that work primarily with well know developers and they are always looking to work with buyers before the properties are listed. Please feel free to contact me for more information
