    I would check the interest rates at all the financial institutions in your area and go from there.All I have to offer.LOL

    All my loans are through GMAC or Ditech however they are doing business now. Interest rates are good and they close really quick. I would go online and see if they are still offering first time buyers. Not sure where to look though....maybe the new .gov site they are talking about.

    thanks for the info so far.im hoping that we will have some decent loan options sice it is in a rual area,maybe fha or usda or someting.but that house is perfect and i have to have it.ther is no other house i seen for the price that i would even want to go after.the price of the house is just under 150,000.property taxes are only 1800 a year.I HAVE TO HAVE IT.

    so if anyone knows any more tricks to help me out in the loan process,please let them fly.

    we are calling to day to see if we can get a loan or not.got my fingers crossed

    If you call GMAC they can tell you yes or no over the phone. I have had nothing but positive experiences with them.
