Looks like I might get lucky and get some instant equity in the condo … the final report won’t be ready until Wednesday morning, but the word I’ve got is that the appraiser did 9 comps of other similar units in Holladay, and of those only one sold/appraised below my offer …

This means it shouldn’t be a problem getting my place appraised for the amount of the loan at the very least, and possibly a little more. And my broker is indicating that the program he’s got me in is actually a prime program, not sub-prime or even alt-A, which surprised me.

Obviously, I’m hoping for the “more” on the appraisal … and of course still worrying about the loan going through, but thus far all the news I’m getting is good …

Could it be? Could something finally be going my way this year?
