John Burke Loan Officer answered:
Hi Carl,

It depends on the lender, where you're buying & the loan program.

The main issue I see is your price point. If you are not buying in a high cost area where the loan limits are over the standard limit of $453,100 you're not going to have any options unless you have VA entitlement.

With your score, you'll probably going to be looking at an FHA loan but you'll have to find out what the FHA loan limit is for the county you're buying in.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with an agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache. Check out this link to compare your options “Selling to a local homebuyer” Vs. “Listing with an Agent”. Hope you found this as useful as I did. ... more

Most town homes are 2 story but as for having one wall in common, that is not always the case. Many are completely detached. You can Google home styles or architecture. There are pictures and drawings that show you the different styles of homes. ... more

Earnest money is fluid. It depends on the price, how many offers are on the table and most importantly it should reflect how badly you want the house.

Karen Peyton answered:
As a rule of thumb, buyer closing costs run 3 to 4% of the full purchase price in addition to the down payment. Sellers closing costs run 1.5 to 2% plus the commission owed agents.

It is typical that each party pays their own, however with an uptick in price, buyers often ask the seller to contribute, paying some or all of their costs. When increasing the price, it is important to consider whether or not the home will appraise.
