LOL@ Annette If my parents had investments of the sort I wouldnt be looking for such a cheap mortgage, but thatnks for the advise.

Just got a call from my Agent the Condo development is not FHA Approved so I would have to go with a conventional Loan.

Which is Hard to belive, ill call the Management office and Check

I also just checked my 401K has some extra cash I can withdraw without penalty, since its for the purchase of a home

Do any of you no Brokers In my area who would be able to assit me?

I agree, The bank you do business with or credit union, you may want to take a few months and raise that FICO score just a bit more and there are things you can do to get it up another 30 or 40 points in just a few months. You can also look into regular Mortgage Brokers that will try to find a lender that will fit your needs, Better credit ratings get better mortgage deals! If you go with FHA you only need to put 3.5% down. Again talk with a financing profession in your area!

Good advice from Anna. I do not know any bank that will go so low since it costs the same amount of money to originate a $250,000 loan as one for $45,500.
The credit union you belong to is your best bet otherwise you may want to ask your parents if they are willing to securitize their investments into a mortgage for you. They still receive the income of their investments but cannot sell them.
