We have very little debt (not counting student loans). We have approx $9,000 saved but can not put the entire amount toward a down payment because we want a little saved to be safe. I am worried that we won't save enough money by renting to benefit us in the long run. I have always viewed renting as "throwing away" money but I know it is needed at times. Any advice is welcome.<br \><br \>7 replies Tue, 27 May 2014 20:53:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/New-Graduates-Rent-or-Buy/542776/ 2014-05-27T20:53:00Z Single mother of two children with special needs credit score is 641 why cant i get a loan? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Single-mother-of-two-children-with-special-needs-credit-score-is-641-why-cant-i-get-a-loan/533509/ !st time buyer. &nbsp;Have just finished college and have a job starting in few weeks. &nbsp;Are there special programs for my situation? &nbsp;How do I find them? &nbsp;What about rent to own is this my only option and is this a worthy route?<br \><br \>3 replies Mon, 24 Mar 2014 01:02:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Single-mother-of-two-children-with-special-needs-credit-score-is-641-why-cant-i-get-a-loan/533509/ 2014-03-24T01:02:00Z how long does it take to buy a home? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-long-does-it-take-to-buy-a-home/528538/ 6 replies Sat, 15 Feb 2014 03:55:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-long-does-it-take-to-buy-a-home/528538/ 2014-02-15T03:55:00Z (Moved): What can I do to get more (or better) quotes for my loan request ZR-JNSWRLW? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Moved-What-can-I-do-to-get-more-or-better-quotes-for-my-loan-request-ZR-JNSWRLW/523396/ This discussion has been moved to the following location: <a href="http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-can-I-do-to-get-more-or-better-quotes-for-my-loan-request-ZR-JNSWRLW/523373/">http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-can-I-do-to-get-more-or-better-quotes-for-my-loan-request-ZR-JNSWRLW/523373/</a><br \><br \>0 replies Sun, 05 Jan 2014 20:02:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Moved-What-can-I-do-to-get-more-or-better-quotes-for-my-loan-request-ZR-JNSWRLW/523396/ 2014-01-05T20:02:00Z Is it better to use the first time homebuyers program versus buying investment property first http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Is-it-better-to-use-the-first-time-homebuyers-program-versus-buying-investment-property-first/510613/ I am a first time homebuyer that is interested in buying investment property to live in and fix up to sell.&nbsp; But I dont know if I will be risking my first time homebuyer status on investments when I might be better off using the first time homebuyer program and get the home im going to live in and then start buying investment properties.&nbsp;<br \><br \>2 replies Mon, 09 Sep 2013 19:30:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Is-it-better-to-use-the-first-time-homebuyers-program-versus-buying-investment-property-first/510613/ 2013-09-09T19:30:00Z I want to buy a house on 6 acres for 80k. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-want-to-buy-a-house-on-6-acres-for-80k/505582/ The owner bought the house with the intention to flip.Previous owner started to remodel.
