With 5% down and conventional financing, your max sales price could be about $260k'ish - you can increase that to around $290k by paying a single premium PMI instead of a monthly amount, but that increases your "funds to close" or interest rate. With FHA and 3.5% down, your max sales price could be about $280k'ish (max FHA loan amount in Mclean County, IL is $271,050... but you can always buy a higher sales price and put down the additional difference).
