Spend nothing from now until you close, btw.

Pre Approval -> Actual Approval -> One more credit check -> Closing

Stay on top of it, and make sure you lock in your rate. :yesway:

awesome dude!! I'm really happy for you! If you're doing an FHA loan the downpayment will be only about 3.75% :)

:agreed: It's FHA. The finance guy I'm working with told me it's currently 3.5%.

I'm currently house shopping, but there's not a lot around here in my price range unless it's a run down shit hole. They also aren't building any new smaller houses, just new subdivisions with like $500k+ homes, which is a lot for around here.

That's a problem up in this area too. Every new construction is some monstrous abomination full of half-mil homes with no yards. Whatever happened to starter homes? 3 bedroom ranches and such?

Damn that is nuts. My area is full of nice houses from the $90,000 to $200,000 range. Tons of options.

You guys are all lucky, property around here is grossly inflated.

Congrats though Zepp! This is a good excuse to buy gear to fill the house up with. You know how it is :D

Your family owns Ferraris and shit man. I wouldn't expect too many cheap ranches to spring up in that area. :lol:

There are lots of used houses around here, that's what I'm shopping for. It seems whenever I'm actually seriously shopping though, all the houses in the $130k range or so are run down shit holes. Whenever I'm not seriously shopping, it seems all the nice ones in that range show up :lol:
