i'm going with an FHA with 3% down.

i talked to my broker yesterday(20th april) and he quoted me
exactly 7.375.
i told him about 80-10-10 and he said u need 10% down for that.
i asked him about points and he said dont waste your money, pay
off ur credit cards first, u'll be refinancing in a few years
anyway to get rid of PMI.
BTW, i'll be locking my rate on wednesday.
