Sub prime, I never heard that term before.
(Say Lisa, how do they figure the credit score when the husband and wife 
have different scores?)

Ok let's pull out the mortgage calculator and redo this.

$500k at 8% (why not?).
$3668.82 / month, that's $820,776.23 INTEREST over the 30 years.

$3668 (P&I) + $500 (tax) + $50 (insurance) = $4218 a month

If you ask me that's a LOT of money for a house.
