Well, that certainly puts it in perspective!

So does that mean "there's never been a better time to buy"? Sarcasm off!

They will be paying us to live in them in two years!

so....ive been waiting for the right deal to come along...and a house that i have been eyeing for over a year finally dropped to $499,900 from $649,000, putting it right in my price i think. i call a lender and with a middle credit score of 627, they want me to put 25% down !!! (My income is WAY substantial...they say it s strictly the "low" credit score) oh, and the interest rate is 6.8%. so heres the that prices are coming down, interest rates are going up so that the "deal" isnt such a good "deal"...not to mention that a huge percentage of buyers must be getting cut out due to the restrictive guidelines. Guess Ill wait another year....

J Ryan, thanks for sharing your experience, we learn more from one report like that, than a hundred pondering "what ifs". Btw, did you try for an FHA loan? They are supposed to have lower downs and looser credit score levels for acceptance.

JR - the lender is right, 627 is a low score. Anything less than 700 nowadays will get looked at very carefully.

yes, i am seeing that 627 is wasnt too low just 8 months ago when i refinanced my house for $417,000.00 I know that it wasnt a great score...but i didnt think that it was "low". I used to think of 700 as a "great" credit score....i guess that now it is just "good" Yes, the lender was looking at fha.She was just really pessimistic. I called wamu today and they said that they would do it with 25% down, unless my credit was 660 .Oh well...the faster I run, the behinder I get!!
