Hi Sharon,

I have lots of questions to help me with your search, such as are you wanting a condo, townhome or detached home? Do you need parking? When you say small is 2BR 1BA big enough? Do you already have a lender in place? If you want a true fixer upper a 203K loan might be the best way to go because it would allow you to roll the renovation costs into the mortgage and I can recommend some direct lenders who do those loans.

Please feel free to contact me and talk over exactly what you are looking for so we can find a place for you in time to qualify for the Federal Tax Credit. We'll need to get a contract on a property no later than April 30 for you to get the credit.
