Rebates are legal in 40 states. Some inexperienced brokers use the rebate to get an advantage so be careful of those that offer rebates being a lil' green in the field. Shop the rebate around until you come across a broker who is experienced and competent. Realtors will always tell you 50 reasons why a discount broker is less inferior but don't listen to their yada yada yada as 80% of them are clueless and are more trouble then their worth.

Good Luck,

Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

There are programs available that calculate student loans differently to make it easier for you to qualify.

I'm not sure what program you applied for that you were denied for.

I would need more details to determine how you can be helped.

If you would like help with this or have any questions you are welcome to get in touch with me.

I know of people who have had delay after delay from builder (or lack thereof)
The worst Sheetrock, trim and paint jobs and supervision I have ever seen.
Terribly dirty and no care given for floors put down-they never covered them and subs just tracked through on top of them every day-I have 'never' seen anyone leave a construction site like this.
Cant get a punch list for closing done -very indifferent. it will be a nightmare for them to ever get problems fixed afterward-very sad experience for paying so much money and sub par workmanship, and absolutely no caring by whomever the Site / Project manager is,
