Mom and Dad are practically begging to give me money for a down payment. o.o Not that they will be able to give me much (I figure $2500 tops) as they are both retired, but I appreciate it greatly. I didn't even have to ask!

Travis stayed home sick yesterday, so I persuaded him to call the lender that my boss recommended. We should have no problem prequalifying for a loan. We're making an appointment to go see her (and hopefully one or two more lenders). If the other lenders offer similar rates, we could really have a shot at buying the house. Basically if we can negociate the price of the house down a bit and bargain for the seller to cover some of the closing costs, we'll be in business!

The only difficult part will be selling my mobile home. Anyone interested in a 2004 double wide in good condition?

Excellent! Mom made a similar offer, but I just can't right now. :( I'm going to miss the $8k offer too, but I can't juggle a mortgage AND a rent payment. Guh.

I hated renting. Our apartment was up to over $750 before we left. Guh.

Thankfully I think we could cover a new mortgage and our old one for a little while assuming we get a decent rate, but hopefully I can do SOMETHING to sell my mobile home sooner rather than later. At least I know I'm already losing money on the damned thing. >.

That's the major downside to MH's. No resale value suuucks.

I don't mind renting, I just hate that I can't improve the place. The appliances are horrid and I can't stand the faucets.
