Securing a Home Loan

Shaun Cooley has been renting an apartment on his own since finishing high school at age 16. Now 19, Cooley has been working as a computer programmer for three years now, and he has amassed a sizable savings. He'd like to put his money to good use and buy his first home. Helping him in this endeavor are two of his childhood friends who have recently started a career in real estate. Together, Cooley and his realtors Steve Erdely and Chad Ceretto, are in the market for a perfect first house. Even if they locate that perfect home, his short credit history may prove to be an obstacle to securing a home loan.
