| Money Talk|| Unwarranted condo complexes - financing options - baytiger on 4/30/13 at 11:37 am|
Ok, so my wife and I put an offer on a condo and got initial approval on a 5% down 30 year loan, but today we found out that the original builder still owns 25% of the units so it won't qualify for a conventional loan, and our lender dropped us.
Is it even worth pursuing further at this point? I ...

I've seen it mentioned sporadically but it hasn't gotten its own thread yet.
I downloaded it a couple days back and I'm really enjoying it. I love the customization options and the implementation of the sphere grid... and the gear dependency makes looting even more fun than Diablo 2 was.
