Thank you for asking the question as it is imperative to know the proper steps. The very first is to connect with a lender.

If you'd send me an email where I can forward you the booklet, it will be beneficial for you no matter whom you hire to work with you.

Fun girl,

Everything is negotiable. If FHA you need at least 3%, of not roughly 20%, If rural farmland nothing (USDA) loan! You can negotiate this with the seller on the purchase contract. Some cities have programs to help with first time home buyers. Make your agent work for you, that's why we get paid for!

Happy House Hunting!

Sounds like you have done your homework!
If you are right, you should not let a moment pass and purchase this house NOW. The day after closing you can resell if for 'PLUS" $425,000! Now that is real profit.
You should buy it! NOW! $425,00 straight into your retirement account (Self-directed IRA).
Best of success to you.
