Good points Zach Sikes . Saving money is always good, and here in Arizona and other places there is help in that department where there is economic stimulus money still available through the Arizona Department of Housing and local government like the Home In Five program in Maricopa County. Free grants are available for down payment and/or buyer closing costs for buyers to ask their lenders about. Also, with your point about finding a good Realtor. A buyer's Realtor can help negotiate with Seller a contribution towards buyer closing costs. Thanks for sharing
