My husband and I would like to purchase our first house. We have been renting for over ten years now and we feel that the time is right to buy. I have already submitted applications for the SHIP program and the HUD program for assistance with down payment and closing cost. we are need help on where to look for a home loan. We are looking for a at least 3 bedrooms 2 bath home, but if we can find a 4 bedroom even better. Our price range is from 50k to 100k. We would prefer a single family home or mobile home(depending on condition)if possible. Due to my husband and I working schedule(8am until 530pm, with my husband pulling overtime until 7pm during week and 8 to 2pm on saterdays)we would like to meet on a Saterday afternoon or Sunday if possible. I have looked at other realtor sites and I find yours the most appealing and request your assistance.

Thank You,

Andrea S. Henderson

A recent promotion brought me here and I think I'll be staying. That said, I would like any information you may have on a 1st time home buyers class. I would like to purchase within 3 or 4 months. Time is of the essence!!!
