My father and aunt live in Fishers, IN. My dad has the biggest house in his and he paid 200k I think and he moved from NJ with an 800+k house so he was satisfied lol. My aunt just closed last week on a very nice home there for 95k. I told her I hate her lol

Oh my gosh! Fishers? That's about 20 minutes from me, lol. Small world!!

I am now a homeowner of my first ever home.  I'm so amazed!

 

Purchase Price: $163,020

Monthly Payments: $988.00 (included escrowed taxes, insurance, and PMI)

Closing Costs: Under $5,000 including down payment, due to builder's contribution.  Includes all appliances, too!
Property: 1500 sq foot new construction, 3 bdrm, 2 bath
Toured house : 12/02/12
Signed Purchased Contract On : 12/14/12
Type of loan: Conventional 3% down
Loan rate: 3.25%
Loan application submitted: 12/17/12
Loan approved: 12/28/12 -- no conditions
Closing date: 1/11/13
Closed on: 1/11/13

 

Once I got over the initial hurdle with the builder contract, everything else went smooth as silk.  Very fast, closing on time, loan approval done bam! bam! bam!.  Now, my back and I are not on speaking terms after 3 days of schlepping boxes, but I am a homeowner for the very first time in my life.  I'm going to have a lot of fun!

How did you manage to get approved for just 3% on a conventional loan?

Re: January and February

I beg your pardon.  It was 3.5% down.  Still a good deal, I think!
