    Well I spoke for about an hour or so with a very nice and informative mortgage broker. I learned some more info was well. He will send my prequalification letter if I want it, but I decided to get my paperwork together and apply now and my loan (not rate) is good for 120 days, hopefully I can find a house in my price range within that time period. He is also going to "try" to get me the VHDA, which is 107% financing which will cover everything, scores are a factor but a he spoke with the underwriter about the process and thinks that just one old collection (no matter how equifax reports it grrr) we have a pretty good shot at it and if not FHA is basically good to go. I will keep you posted.

    P.S. Judy, he mentioned he spoke with you, I hope all went weel:)

    Mom, great news! Wow! How exciting!

    Well, it looks like we are definately making the move back to Texas. (Shorter

    I can't help thinking of the Top 10 list when I think about moving. Better yet, house prices are 1/2!

    I responded to your post a few down. Glad to hear they can help.

    HUmmm I will have to check into the VHDA thing as I have been putting all my $$ towards paying off debt. So I don't have any saved, 107% sounds good. Otherwise FHA too.

    I'll let you know how it goes.
