O.K. everyone, I really need input! I posted a week or so ago about trying to decide whether to buy a house or not that my husband and I wanted so badly. Well we decided to finally do it by applying for a bridge loan. The bank approved the loan on the basis that the appraisals of our present home and the new home came back close to our asking price of our present home and close to the asking price that we offered for the new home (it is not completed yet). I feel like I am living a nightmare because our realtor is now upset saying that the deal is not closed because there is a hidden "contigency" in our approval. According to the bank, they typed a form letter and they cannot provide a loan yet for a house that has not been finished or appraised. Our realtor has stopped working with us and does have a full-cash buyer. Can she break our contract when we have been approved for a bridge loan that will be given the day of the house closing because she has a cash buyer? We are devestated and confused. I hope I can forget all this when I get back to school and teach because this weekend has not been a good one!
