The monthly mortgage and down payment is usually calculated by the cost of the home you are wanting to buy. I have a mortgage calculator on the blog below. You can use that to figure in your monthly mortgage.
If someone had a credit score of 546 then I would advise them to do things to try to increase their Credit Score. Things such as getting a Target Red Card or getting a credit card and only buying small things with it and making sure you pay it off as fast as possible. Talk to a money lender in your area and they can help you out.

Best advice is to visit with a mortgage professional who specializes in FHA 203k loans.

Tip: Ask how many 203k loans they closed in the last 6 months

Good luck!

Hi All,

Thanks a lot or you response. I am also confused with this.

One thing I found out that Condos mostly do have a common entrance where where Townhouse have their own. One thing you all said right was as long as home owners association is there and they cover outside like roof in case of townhouse and the common area like pool and all the property is considered as condo even though a townhouse has its own lot unlike condo in which case you own airspace only.

The only thing that is bothering me that mortgage company I am dealing with gave me rate lock in agreement based on townhouse that is what I told them but as the appraisal report says it is condo they are not honoring their own agreement.

My question is do can do it or not? It looks like I am paying for their mess up. Is there any way I can make them to honor their agreement.

Again thanks a lot to all of you...
