home buyer: Is three really a crowd in today's homes? - 01/17/13 08:05 AM
REALTOR Magazine came out with this article about changing floor plans in new construction.  I'm finding that we need it in the Pac NW due to the influx of multiple ethnic groups that have traditions of an parent coming to live with a young couple once they have children.  There don't seem to be nearly enough floor plans that allow for this kind of household environment.

home buyer: Why you should be sure to review and understand all lending options when buying a property - 03/15/11 05:47 AM
When you're talking to a lender about getting financing for a home, be sure to talk about the GSE (government sponsored entities like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) and government backed programs (FHA or VA) in detail to know what is best for your situation. Note in this article that Freddie Mac is upping its minimum down payment from 3% to 5% so that may make FHA more the product of choice for some purchasers.
