Ok, great. Thanks so much for the replies! After we decided we might need to move earlier than expected I was so upset about having applied for the new credit. It's always nice to know how the situation looks from the outside Smiley Happy

I'm thinking we'll probably go for the FHA loan because the smaller down payment would be better right now. But we're definitely weighing the options of FHA vs. Conventional.

Best of Luck to you guys!!
