    @Rico Suave Does your state have first time home buyers assistance? Maybe look into something like that if it's offered in your area?

    In my state they will help with down payments and/or closing costs depending on your families income and the median income of the area you're looking to move to.

    @TaterTot :?: Never say never? J got really discouraged when he didn’t get that job. Honestly, I don’t think buying in SD will fall into place for us right now so there is where we would start looking next. It would be infinitely easier to buy up there.

    You let me know. I have some great suggestions on where to look - and where there is gigabit internet. :mrgreen:

    My landlord very kindly agreed to let me end my lease early without penalty, and I got prequalified to buy, so we are officially house hunting! There is a house on the market right now that we LOVE and my realtor is going to see it on our behalf today with my parents tagging along with a laundry list of things to photograph and measure for us, but I’m fully expecting to put an offer in if it’s still available. I think the market is still pretty hot and I know there are multiple showings today so I’m trying not to get my hopes up, but this house looks perfect and I am dying.

    Prequalified or preapproved? Don’t you guys already own a house in Florida?

    Preapproved and I have a prequal letter. My lender gave me the green light to put in an offer. We actually rented when we were in FL... we own 2 properties in CT which we rent out.

    They verbally accepted our offer so I’m slowly dying inside waiting for their signature to make it official!!!
