Am I doomed?Hope to hear from buyers out there. In light of the new and upcoming requirements to secure a loan such as significant downpayment and/or higher interest rate; is there any hope that I can ever sell my house? It is what a lot of folks refer to as a 'starter' house, less than 2,000 sqft, 3 bed 2 bath. I would imagine that someone looking for a home in that price point is not a previous homeowner and I am having doubts that there is anyone out there with 5-10% of the sale price sitting in the bank to pony up for a down payment. Are there any first time home buyers on the boards here that can provide perspective on these new requirements and how that is affecting your home buying decision?July 16 2008 - US11YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
