I started this process roughly 3.5 weeks ago around February 10, working with a direct lender in the area. I was advised I should go with an FHA home refinance, I have submitted all paperwork in a timely manner. Everything was going fine at first, I was told it would be between 30-45 days etc.. Initially it seemed like it would be smooth sailing. I completed the application and was told I was approved by the desktop underwriter. I submitted additional documentation and was told my file was being sent to the underwriter and we would hear back in 3 days. Long story short it's been 2 weeks now and no word back, I email and call for information only to be told it's at underwriting and no news is good news. Furthermore they haven't even scheduled the appraiser yet or ordered it. Am I right to be overly concerned, and if so what should I do? Additional property information. Current loan is $150k, property value zestimate is around $375k.<br \><br \>16 replies Wed, 04 Mar 2015 17:59:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Refinance-mortgage-question/577742/ 2015-03-04T17:59:00Z Is Whittier, CA an OK area? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Is-Whittier-CA-an-OK-area/273884/ I'm looking around the la habra/la mirada area, but found a home in whittier right on the border near la habra (right next to the la habra costco).
