Yes I know several Mortgage Brokers, some of which are Veterans themselves that offer VA loans. With the amount you have as a down payment you may not even need your roommates income, beside of the strong compensating factors you have Lenders can increase the max debt to income ratios.. If you want to save that down payment and use your roommates income that is another possible option.

Check out The Lenders Network website or email me if you are still looking for some guidance.

Looks like you should be good depending on any other debt. Whatever you do - be sure to shop lenders to make sure you are getting the best deal.

Yes to all, and I can send to some good lenders to get you started in getting qualified for a loan.
Where are you looking?
If you're looking in Fullerton I know of a good house in a very good zip code 3 bed 2ba but needs some plumbing work (looks minor at the kitchen, bathroom maybe a lot more but we'll finbd out at formal inspection---- the rest are in good shape .., Conservatively, $3-5000 fixes the issues. you can allocate some of your $ for that.
the average rents are 600-650 per room ..the brand new university rentals are 745/room
If you want Irvine you will get a condo for sure and only 2 bedrooms and you also pay HOA of about 350-400 per month on top of your mortgage... the rent is almost the same.. $50 more

Let me know!

if you are considered Sr. Citizen, there was a program that require a high down depending on your age (40% if you're 62, 30% if you're 70, etc) ..and you won't have to pay mortgage until you leave the home. No restrictions on who lives with you.

I can refer you to a lender and I can help you find a home (I service a wide area). where are you looking? Do you have a realtor?

You would have to speak with a lender and I have a lender that use to be in the military himself and knows the ins and outs of the military and VA for servicemen
Ken Bates 619-254-3168
Dave Balsz 949-939-2907
I would call both and ask what there fees are for doing the loan. All lenders charge a fee even those that say there are no fees to be paid upfront. They maybe rolled into the loan. Want to help you know what's all involved

Not all lenders work with VA loans
Let me know how else I can help you
