Default Looking to buy my first house

Got a nice down payment set aside and im ready to start my life and make an honest woman of my girlfriend and i always told myself a house and steady income comes first so i know i can provide.

This is what im looking for:
would like the place to be green
more republican, least amount of gun laws
low crime rate
somewhat decent weather
has work
good projected value, so an up and coming area
good school system for when im ready for kids

im looking in the 50-130k range.

What do you guys think?

Don't buy a house, buy a condo. No mowing lawns, no repairs, no headaches. Same equity.

I go to work and work, come home and work, then sleep. And repeat. If i had a condo I could come home and enjoy time with my family.

I don't know about prices in Texas but in CT $130k could get you a decent condo in a nice area. Can't buy a nice house for less than $250k

Don't buy a condo. Unless you wanna be on the 4th floor, have neighbors all around you and have HOV and possibly other fees tacked onto the mortgage. Just my opinion, plus truth to that.

Coming from a homeowner myself, I would look into getting your credit score up a little as they will tell you the same thing. Reason is because it'll look better on paper and possibly get your estimate higher than what you have now...if you can afford it. Next step, find a really good real estate agent. And possibly a real estate advisor/broker. By choice of course!! I would not put the entire amount you have saved up as a down payment. Reason being is because in case you find a house pretty cheap that might need updating or a fixer upper that you can put in a little $$ yourself and go from there. Some of the times, sellers will pay for closing costs. It's a situation where you have to ask or some times they may say no and then it would be up to you if you can afford the closing costs.

I like this house. It's location is in Kissimmee, FL. 4bd 2ba Home for Sale in Kissimmee Big, roomy, cheap compared to here and esp in CA.
orlando real estate "kissimmee" - craigslist

A list of houses there for sale and range from 5 digit numbers to just over a mill.

Another I like and it's at the upper end of my price point WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THE BACKYARD VIEW!!!

I'm moving back here after my Mom passes...Heber-Overgaard Heber Real Estate - 338 Homes For Sale | Zillow... guns cool hell you can wear one low taxes cheap houses and not so pot friendly as of now. If you want a lot of work and a cheap house check out vegas area> I f you like water sports check out henderson next to vegas. Nevada has a card now too. If you like snow sports check out utah, cheap houses lots of construction work, pot obviously not cool, mrmons trying to convert you not cool but the towns in the ski areas are like 75% californians.

I haven't been following the housing market lately but if it's a buyers market get in quick because it can change fast
Also in your price range don't lowball a real offer
Under $150k tends to be a very fast sell market because at that price point most sales are not contingent on the buyer selling their house first
Be competitive with your offer and check the mls listing everyday

My house went on the mls site at noon I looked at it at 7 and there were already 3 other showings and one offer so I offered the asking price
