Well, well, 2 things happened today!

  1. we got our written unconditional loan approval! yay!! ^^; and
  2. we signed our building contract (unfortunately, we had to part with the remaining part of the 5% deposit… ouch… it hurt the pocket lots *sigh*)

Good times! hehe… Now, we have to pray that we’re able to make the settlement deadline… gah! April 1 is coming quite fast too =/

So, after wasting 5-6 wks with our previous bank, and having the final evaluation come out under, we got our broker to quickly change banks and make sure that we get things rolling before the settlement notices have been given out… Fortunately, we got a verbal unconditional approval, just as the settlement notices came along… the bad thing is, we’re not sure if we’re going to make it…

anyways… grrr, banks can be infuriating at times… until the next update… *sigh*
