How a Veteran in Tennessee Finally Got Their Home Closed

How a Veteran in Tennessee Finally Got Their Home Closed

Let's explore Rob Gordon's journey, a true saga of resilience meeting the right help in the nick of time. Rob and his wife have been caring for their two grandchildren, ages 11 and 12. They wanted to move to Tennessee so they could be closer to their grandchildren's extended family. This became even more important after the passing of their father.

A Veteran's Good Deed Faces Unexpected Hurdles

Rob, in a nice gesture to help another veteran in Arizona, sold his home via an assumption loan. This meant the buyer would assume Rob's VA loan at a beneficial 2.5% interest rate. Although straightforward, the process ended up being more complicated than they anticipated.

Closing Battles and Struggle with Delays

The Gordons faced numerous delays and uncertainties while closing their Arizona home, which they needed to do before securing their new Tennessee home. They had hoped to close this year on May 4th, only to face repeated rescheduling. Thankfully, the Tennessee home sellers let the Gordons move in on the 5th despite the ongoing issues in Arizona. This isn't a typical move recommended by anyone, but at the time, all signs pointed to a sure thing, and the moving van had arrived.

Tackling and Overcoming VA Loan Obstacles

Rob felt stressed due to his VA benefit limits, which prohibited having two home loans at the combined value. Selling the Arizona home was necessary before buying the Tennessee home. As the closing in Arizona was delayed further to the 19th, anxiety rose for both the Gordons and the Tennessee sellers. The Gordons thought it'd be heartbreaking, expensive, and nerve-wracking to have to move again, even if it was only for a short time. They had settled into the Tennessee home, and they wanted to stay.

Justin and the NAF Cash Program to the Rescue

At this point, Justin Lusk, a Sr. Loan Consultant from New American Funding, an affiliate company of NAF Cash, brought up the NAF Cash service. Rob vividly recalls, "Justin was on top of it, and he treated me like it was his dealings. He took it very personal." The Gordons, living in the new Tennessee house already, could quickly submit a cash offer for it, thanks to the program. That immediately reduced the tension.

A Happy Ending with Major Cost Savings

Finally, when the Arizona home closed, the Gordons repurchased the Tennessee home on June 1st. Rob estimates that the NAF Cash service saved them about $30,000 in potential moving and storage costs. The convenience fee for the NAF Cash service paled compared to the overall savings and stress relief it provided.
