What problems/delays/concerns did you have when finding a house to buy? This is our first time, we got the loan approval notice on friday and the "Certificate of eligibility" today (basically a signed note from our loan officer). The loan is through the USDA Rural Development so they have pretty strict requirements as it is, and many of the ones we've found or liked in our town barely meet those requirements :-/
We did find out today that we also have/had the option to work with a builder and get land and a new house built if it was within our loan amount but that would take even longer and we just REALLY want to get into our own house fast... So any tips for us, things you didn't think of at first but wish you knew now? important questions we should ask about the house? Thanks for the advice!! :)
