Please add to this list and then cut-and-paste it as your answer (sometimes) when Newbies come to the Vine with their questions. Let's make it a real resource for them, shall we? Newbies, there is SO MUCH critical information at these links, you really have no excuse now for asking: "What are the FHA loan limits for 2002?" But if you’ve tried
    • everything, and you’re still REALLY stuck, bring your question(s) here and we'll answer them as best we can. (Newbies, give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Viners, better to light a single candle than curse the darkness, eh?) Good luck, Newbies, one and all!
