All this talk is making me really dread trying to buy my own house here in a few months (hopefully).

It’s actually not that bad. It seems daunting at first, but if you find a good realtor that can take you through all the steps, it ended up being way easier than I expected.

It isn’t that bad. It’s just bad when you can only qualify for certain loans and you ha e to jump through hoops. If you can do conventional, it is pretty cut and dry.

As said above, find a good realtor who doesn’t just want to sell a house and isn’t lazy and you will get off on the right foot. Then find an experienced mortgage banker/broker, it’s easier at smaller, hometown type banks and they will take the time to explain everything to you. When I swore off Wells Fargo, I got a mortgage guy who had been doing it for 2 years. I knew more than he did about the process and was constantly calling him checking to ensure things were moving properly.

Well the realtor part shouldn’t be too difficult because my sister started working part time for a realtor in her since she works 4/10 shifts. So she should be able to point me toward somebody I can trust.
