If you are working with a real estate agent, they should be able to set you up with an automatic search of the Multiple Listing Service (TREND MLS) that sends results directly to your e-mail, with up-to-date searches of new properties or any changes in status like price changes or whether a house went under contract.
If you don't already have this, you can either go to my website and click on Search For A Home, put in some basic information and click SEARCH, then go to the status bar above and click on SearchSaver and you can create an automatic search that will send results directly to you. Or you can call me at Keller Williams Realty Elite at 484-334-7542 and I can set you up with a search. Let me know if there's anything more I can help with.
(Sorry about the Sylvan Drive house....however, there are another five houses in that development for sale right now, and many more in that area and price point.)
This is a very broad question. Your first step would be to talk to a good loan officer and see what kind of loan programs you qualify for. If you don't know of any personally, i would be glad to assist you. The very best of luck to you!

You should work with a buyers agent who can help you and show you homes and recent sales in the area so that you can decide on the purchase price.
If you are not working with an agent, you can go to my web site and look up all available listings at http://www.gitabantwal.com
Call me if you have any questions.
In this case, just a shade under $6,000 will get you into the home if you get seller paid closing costs.
Let me know if I can help.
The minimum would have to be 3% of purchase price, an FHA loan. You will also need money for closing costs and any pre-pays(taxes, insurance). That could run up to $10,000 alone, hopefully less. If you do not have that extra cash you might need a seller's concession. Talk to a loan officer and they can go into much more detail with you. Of course, If you already own a home and have equity you will have extra money when you sell your house.
