I understand your plight. I to live in the bay area and real estate is on the higher side. I agree that you want to choose a location that you are going to want to live in when you retire. Right now is a great time to purchase since home values are down, rates are low and if you are in a position to purchase take advantage of these economic times. There are many quesitons you need to ask yourself:1. Where do I want to live when I retire2. What will my income be at that time, to make sure that you can afford the payment.3. How much can I put down on a purchase right now.4. The home I purchase, what is the rental market like? Is it stable, how much rent will I receive.5. How do I choose a real estate agent?6. How do I choose a lender?7. What are the next steps that I need to take.Just some questions to be thinking about in your decision making process.Good luck and make it a great day!!
As a first timer look at Fannie Mae's Home Path at Homepath.com3% down and until Dec 30 a 3.5% buyer incentive for owner occupants.The home are often in very good condition and newer (in my area). You don't need an appraisal and there is never mortgage insurance. However with the 3% down comes the risk based pricing. You do want to go thru the "pre-qualify" process. These Home Path loans should close quickly as there is NO appraisal.
