Like the others have said, income is only a portion of waht a loan officer looks at for loan qualification. There are a number of lenders you can talk with. Three lenders that I have found to be very helpful, but not intrusive are:

Steve Jenne (816-820-3451) or Jack Ronen (913-669-0250) Community America Credit Union
Jason Lentsch (913-253-0157) National Bank Of Kansas City
Jeff Kriebel (800) 226-6308 extension 31141 Quicken Loans

There are actually a few other factors to consider. I have multiple lenders that I work with who are trustworthy and very responsive. I would be happy to have one of them call you or I could give you the phone# for several so you can interview them before you give out too much information. Remember, just because you get a pre-approval from a lender you are not locked in to purchase with them. However, it is better for your credit score to have fewer inquiries.

If you go FHA for example, your payment would be near $1200 with a 3.5% down payment. Does that seem like an affordable payment for you?

Please contact me so we can discuss this further and I can put you in touch with one or several reputable lenders. 816-665-4102

Loan approval depends on many things other than monthly income. Credit rating, monthly expenses, down payment funds, etc. There are many loan programs available throughout the city designed to assist first-time homebuyers. Please contact me, and I can provide you with some names of very good loan officers. 913-219-2289 or

Definitely speak with a loan officer in your area. Your Debt-to-Income looks high relative to your monthly income but a mortgage specialist could help put you on the right track. Good luck!

I don't think you will qualify for that high but you might. Contact Robert Hastings at and complete an application. Very knowledgeable lender
