Loan terms? 30 fixed or arm 5/7 arm? I REALLY PLAN ON LEAVING BAKO WITHIN 5 YEARS.
If you will be moving within 5years, why would you want to pay for a 30 year loan if you are sure that you won't need it? The rate is higher for a 30 year loan for a reason.

Are there deals being accepted where the seller is asking the buyer for the 3% down?
That would be new to me. Asking for 3% of closing cost is pretty standard in my neck of the woods, but I've never had anyone ask for the down payment too.
