Im thinking renting will be the way to go for a year at least
Both my husband and I have been working anf filing taxes here in Greece, and have jobs ready in the US.
So from what Im hearing here, its best to work a year, get some proof of income and then look at the mortgage options. Still though, Im seeing more properties listed as lease or rent to own, These are the properties Im interested in, and want to know the requirements. I just can stand the thought of "throwing"money out the window renting.

Thanks all for your help!!

I don't know of a single lender using Vantage.

Lenders use all three bureaus.... there is no weighting.

The free e-book I have linked below is about credit.

There are some new bills going into place if voted in that builders relationship with Lenders and Title companies are going to be changing.
However, we just closed a home with them in Keller and the clients were very happy with the lender at Meritage.

Don't just look at the rate, but all the cost. Sometimes they will charge you a slight higher rate so they can roll in some of those extra cost. Either way you are normally going to pay it just depends how you are going to do it. Rate VS Closing Cost. It is a pay me now or pay me over the term of the loan.
