I can't ever get a hold of the guy working on my case. Always goes straight to voicemail, Then he was out of town for 4 days, and now I get an email saying that he needs to reschedule the meeting we had planned for today because his system is down.
I'm one of those people that if there is something that needs to be done, it needs to get done asap! or else these loose ends will bug the hell out of me. Is buying a house always this hard?
Thanks for letting me Rant!
Mortgage companies suck. The last house I bought I purchased on a personal loan and converted to a mortgage after I had it. Saved a lot of hassle. I doubt I could do that with today's banks.
Yes it is always that complicated. The mortgage industry is a pain to work with. More so because of how they have to do things and the things that take time then the individuals.
