Hi Megan! My name is Brenda Morgan I am a realtor from Muscatine Real Estate Associates. I did a quick search for you and it looks like there are 4 homes that may work for you. Just keep in mind most contract sales require 20% down. Have you tried to be preapproved from a lender? A conventional loan usually is 5% down and most FHA loans are usually 3.5% down. Then you would have a greater amount of choices to choose from in the housing market. I would be happy to talk with you anytime. I can be reached at 563-260-2259. Or at Muscatine Real Estate Associates, 1424 Park Ave., Muscatine, IA. 52761
