Two nieces & one nephew have purchased houses in the past 18 months. One niece is a teacher with a low-wage employed husband, the other is a STHM with a husband in school (military paying tuition); the nephew works at a bank and wife is a special-ed teacher.

None have encountered any problems or delays. One niece & nephew were already "homeowners", although of less than two years "ownership" and had no difficulty selling, either. The other niece is a first time home buyer. Two in Massachusetts, one in Pennsylvania. These are all 20-somethings.

My brother bought a house in western MA about 20 months ago. Also no problems. <shrug>
