Keith chennault... The real estate closer!
Lenders will only give you the amount you can comfortable afford to pay back. Since your month;y income is only $1,300 (assuming no other liabilities), they will figure you can afford a monthly payment of about 40% of that (or so).
If you want to purchase a home that costs more than $80,000, you will need to either get a co-signer (to increase the income) or put down a sizable amount of money up front. I'd be happy to chat with you so I can get a more accurate picture of what you are trying to accomplish.
