FHA restrictions have recently eased and they now approving more condos for FHA financing.

The easiest way is to find a realtor who works with a mortgage broker who is familiar with FHA loans.

The realtor will know how to find condos that are FHA approved. -- Since there isn't a master list and rules are constantly changing, it involves a little homework on the realtor's part.

I just spoke to someone today who just listed their home in Naperville for over $500k and within 1 day they had an accepted contract. By the way, it is the highest priced home in the subdivision.

This is a great buying opportunity for those who have the ability.

Cash is king. That means you will have no problems with financing. As such banks, and some sellers will prefer you slightly lower offer over a higher one that has financing and might not happen. ... more
