I need my 203k report in a RUSH!I bet you never heard that before, right? NOT
There isn't a day that goes by that we dont' hear that "comical statement" why is it comical? Because most of the time it wasn't necessary. I just got one a couple days ago where they called me for a RUSH project on Saturday, asked that I rearrange my schedule for Monday but couldn't actually give me the order at that time. Just "could you do it Monday?" Trying to be accomodating I said "sure, we'll figure it out, but you need to place the order". They didn't, of course, but low and behold, I get a call Monday afternoon while having lunch in a nice restaurant asking me to be there in a couple hours. I can't believe the number of people that trivialize what we do and yet it is so important in the process.
No paperwork prepared yet and no way to prepare it before the inspection. Then they failed to bring my check to the inspection. Funny how that works.
What do we do for our money? Create a scope of work, bid the job, and send it out to contractors to bid the project. This rush project was because they waited too long to order the report thinking it was a streamlined k (now called a Limited 203k). People in the business know that 98% of all problem 203k loans is due to the "Limited 203k" program where there is no-one to oversee the project. Had a consultant been brought in early in the process even as a home inspector then there would have been no need to "RUSH" anything.
FHA designed the consulting portion of our job to take two weeks, we have spoiled our customers and get them done in about 4-5 days typically and then they want a RUSH... too funny for words. The contractor will take 3-4 weeks many times to do what we do in 4-5 days. Your consultant needs time to do their due dilligence just as you do. When someone asks for a RUSH it is typically because they are poor planners and their lack of planning becomes someone elses RUSH.
Once you have a problem call our 203k911.com hotline and we'll help you through it or better yet, call us in the first place once you have an accepted offer and you won't experience the need for a RUSH order.
We have fourteen offices in CA covering both states of CA, NorCAL and SoCAL where we can cover the entire state.
