I'm a first time home buyer, advice, opinions, anything you can give!I am in my mid twenties and have gotten a preapproval for a 300K place (I can't complain since unemployment is always an issue). I was looking into Daly City because it's just outside of the outrageously expensive San Francisco (where I reside with my parents). Most of them are ~30 years old but within my price range. I saw some new developments in South San Francisco that I'm very interested in that range from 300-350K (1-2 bdrm condos). Is this a good deal and how would I go about to obtain this before Dec. 1? My mortgage consultant just gave me what he could based on my income and 20% down payment but I feel like I don't have many options...August 13 2009 - San Francisco00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
