Hi, I plan on rolling over 401(k) money in about a year into a Roth IRA conversion. There should be around 10,000 when I do. If I'm not mistaken, if I keep my money there for at least 5 years, then I can withdraw the funds for purchase towards an apartment(it'll be my first property). What I'm not absolutely clear on is can I withdraw the entire amount at that time without penalties or is the withdrawal limited to only $10,000?
Also, I read somewhere that you can actually use ROTH IRA money not only for first time home purchases, but for any home purchase as long as there are a good number of years between each purchase.

Just wondering

A young Fool.
