Timing is Everything– Conforming loan limits will be reduced on Oct. 1, 2011, which will decrease the availability and affordability of mortgage credit for many home buyers in 42 states.3.

Homeownership is Still the American Dream – Nearly nine in 10 Americans say homeownership is an important part of the American Dream.4

Financing is Available – Today’s borrower needs to have stable employment of at least two years; sufficient income to cover the monthly mortgage payment and living expenses; adequate savings to make at least a 3.5% down payment; and, in general, a credit score of at least 620.5 If you meet these basic requirements and plan to live in the home, you may be well on your way.
