I called our loan officer yesterday with some questions we had about the upgrades we had made to the house. We haven't heard from her since we did the loan application. We weren't too concerned about that since we are contingent and assumed we wouldn't get an approval until we were ready to flip to a sale on our new home. When asked about the additions we made, she said, "You could have added the West Wing to your house and you still would have been approved." I said, "We're approved?" She said, "Yes. You didn't know?" Turns out, she had a new underwriter in her office that wasn't letting customers know when they were approved. Our loan officer immediately sent out our approval letter via email. So relieved to have one more thing checked off the list. Now, we just have to sell our current house.
