pa: FHA 203K Mortgages and First Time Home Buyers - 03/22/12 06:02 AM
It’s important for the first time home buyer to know what the expenses are when they are buying a home.  Many first time buyers get stuck on what the down payment and closing costs are, but they don’t look beyond that.  They need to consider what they may need in addition to those items.  The down payment and closing costs are part of the picture, but not the complete picture.  Other items to consider:

Peyton Manning? Are you serious? Yep- I am. I am personally a Philadelphia Eagles fan but for the purposes of this blog and what I am going to be showing you during my next few blogs I need you to understand my point.
Peyton Manning is the true general on the football field. There are others in the league who might be better but no one at his peak can command an offense of 11 players. If your a Pats fan or Saints fan lets leave that aside and let me explain how this fits in with FHA mortgages and more … (5 comments)

pa: FHA 203k Mortgage and a sample situation - 05/03/11 12:00 PM
