Talk to a mortgage lender now and find out what it will take to put you in a position to buy as soon as possible.
With interest rates at an all time low this is a good time to buy. There are a couple of lenders with very good programs for first time home buyers that are better than FHA. Stop your rent from increasing and buy your first home!
The best way to prevent rent from going up year after year is become your OWN landlord.
Home ownership has never been more affordable. Extremely low interest rates, and relatively low home prices.
