yes and no... it all depends on what program you are applying for. Any regular FHA, VA, USDA, or conventional loan, it doesn't matter. Overall, I would need to know what program you are trying for in order to answer that question. Each loan program is different. In most cases, first time home buyer doesn't mean as much as one would think.. again, in most cases. If going for a state bond loan program, there are specific guidelines, and it's usually defined by not owning a property for more the 3 years.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to call me.

Hi Debbi,

Northfield Plaza area has alot of retail stores, and there is housing areas on either side of Tilton Road. The homes are older, nice homes in that area. Northfield doesn�39;t really have a downtown area per I said, all along Tilton Road (the main street through the area) has alot of stores, restuarants, etc. Linwood does have a town square area.

I hope that you are considering a move to our area. My office is in Northfield, and I know you have been asking about Somers Point, Ocean City and Egg Harbor Twp. I would be most happy to email you homes from those areas through my mls system so that you can see what is here in the area.

Please email me at or call my cell at 856-404-3074. I look forward to hearing from you..
