Where would a first time home buyer start?My husband and I both have steady jobs, bringing in roughly $2,400/month. I have excellent credit, am a first time home buyer, hoping to qualify for an FHA loan, to buy a foreclosure/short sale. Down payment will be a gift. We live in the greater Los Angeles Area.
