You might qualify for some special financing since you are looking in rural areas. The problem, from what you put in your question, is that you have only been at this job for 6 months.
What you need is a good Loan officer like Theresa Laine (770-891-4121), who will walk you through the process and not just tell you NO. She may say, "Not right now..." but she'll also tell you what you need to do to get in position to buy.
Since you are a 100% Commission paid person much like I am as a realtor you would need to get a loan based on stated income.
Typically for a stated income type loan you would need at least 2 years of tax returns to qualify. This information will prove to the lender that you have a consistant and steady income. It's a tougher qualification than normal and even tougher since lending restrictions have tightened up.
I would be happy to connect you with one of my lenders so that you may get a second opinion.
One option would be "seller financing" - where the seller acts as the "lender" to finance your purchase.
There is also a "lease option" - where you lease a property that you agree to buy at a future date.
Truly, we would advise you to consult with a real estate agent to find viable options in the areas you are considering. Then, the agent could keep you advised of properties where the seller will work with you to accomplish your goal of home ownership.
If you would like an agent in those areas, please let us know and we will be happy to connect you with that agent.
