Also, these expenses were direct billed by Wells Fargo to our relocation company and everyone agreed to them and indeed it was all accepted. It was a nice surprise for us.......but strange as the origination fee definitely lowered the interest rate.....just like a "point" would have. Our "origination fee is treated like a typical non-recurring closing cost, and all of those were paid by my company. It probably pays to ask the questions ahead of time as it could save you a lot of money.
Thanks for this information. I am going to have to find out whats going on with the relocation expenses. All I know is that they are quite willing to pay for anything provided it is something that they can also write off for tax purposes. But going back and forth through channels to learn whether or not something passes the coporate compliance test for "relocation expense" is time consuming and aggravating. Does anyone know if there is a list or something somewhere?

I doubt that was the reason for tossing. The appraiser could have been "stipped" and asked for an explanation. And an over supply does not automatically mean a declining market.

I suspect that the appraised value came back too low and the LO is going for a different appraiser/appraisal in the hopes it comes back higher.
