That will depend on the type of loan you have and a question for your mortgage broker Typically you would have Principle, interest, taxes & insurance but again depends on your loan. Ask your mortgage broker as this is spelled out in the documents. Good luck ... more

1st time buyer programs have gone by the waste side since the mortgage meltdowin in 2008. rates are based on your credit score, debt to asset ratio and source of income (W2 or 1099). you do get a better rate for being a primary resident. search for information on VA, FHA, USDA and Homepath mortgages as they have fewer requiremetns as conventional loans. ... more

Hello Cathy,
Just to offer some quick idea's i would suggest calling a local agent to asked them if they can run you a report in your price range of places that have sold in the past year. then maybe look at what is currently on the market to see what kind of competition is out there to make sure you have the best equity in your property. If your looking at condos make sure to get all places that have sold in the building in the past year along with assessments if any that have come up. Good luck to you !!
