House hunting Part 2

Well my forms are off and running for a "pre-qualification."

What programs does the city have for first time homebuyers?

Who's a decent realtor?

Anyone have experience with FHA 203(k) Rehabilitation Loans?

Also, one annoying thing: Dauphin County doesn't offer an easy way to see its assessment data like York and Lancaster Counties do. It'd be helpful to have a parcel viewer.

Dauphin County offers $5000 towards closing costs for first time home buyers for taking a class at the YWCA. The class is only $10 or $20 and they give you tons of information. Your lender should probably have information on this.

I can recommend Gary Muccio from ReMax in Camp Hill. He worked with my lender the entire time and made sure nothing was missed. He's excellent for first-time home buyers.
