I live in a portrait townhome that was built in 1997..I would never buy another one. I just call it an upscale apartment. The designing is terrible, like my bedroom is backed up against my neighbors living room. .the walls are thin so I can hear their music or tv, I just thank the Lord that with all the change in next door neighbors that none have been extremely loud.

If I were to ever buy a town home again I would buy one that had a garage in between my town home and my neighbors. So basically unless they have gotten any better since 1997 I myself would would never buy a portrait townhome. They also did a shotty paint job..well best to you in your decision... ... more

Buy using owner financing. If your siblings don't need all their money right away (and apparently they don't), have them finance your purchase. They get a steady stream of income plus interest. And you get to buy your home.

Hope that helps.

Shop around for a mortgage broker that can review all your financing status and provide you with a pre approval letter for the amount that you can easily afford. Mortgage brokers have access to many banks, private lenders and different programs.
After you know how much you afford the next step should be getting in touch with a real estate agent that can assist you, advice you and finalize the buying process.

Best of Luck,

My website has a button on the home page that will allow you to search by school - I suggest entering the high school field and leaving the elem and middle blank.
