Many potential home-buyers have had to deal with increased down payment requirements, tighter debt to income ratio requirements, and higher credit score requirements during the past 2 years and it seems to be getting tougher..... the good news is that if you have a job and are generating income it is just a matter of time before you'll be able to qualify for a new home of your own. Although it may be very frustrating for you and your real estate agent, there is light at the end of the tunnel. And although it might be frustrating you will benefit in the end. The banks and the government are extremely concerned about first time home-buyer defaulting so they are making it more difficult, that means the less home-buyers will be in the market, less homes then will be selling, so prices should fall further... if you do what you need to do, when you need to do it, the chances are you will be in a home sooner than you think. If your not already working with a plan towards home-ownership, then you should do so immediately. The work you do now will pay off is the short future. Waiting will only disappoint you when you find the home of your dreams and you may miss an opportunity because you did not plan ahead.
