Hello Cari. Your credit score is good, your income is good, you will qualify for an FHA loan and the down payment for that is 3.5%. What you qualify for depends on how much you owe, as far as debt. I work this area and can help guide you in your purchase or at least direct you in the right direction. At this time you need to know what you qualify for and a lender will be able to do that. Now I would not direct you to a broker because many banks are not charging origination fees and there would be no need to pay more than you need to. Give me a call or e-mail me and we can get together to go over some of your options.

Good Luck

Hi Cari,

Your credit score is good and it is wonderful that you have been at your job for 14 years. Your mortagage/insurance/taxes/and interest for a $300k loan will be approximately $2100/month. You can qualify for a FHA loan. However, your total debt(including your mortagage) to income ratio should be about 45%. For you this number is $20,250. Your mortagage alone will be $25,200/year. You could reduce your loan amount if you can come up with a large down payment.

I suggust you talk to Dave Gaylord(lender/broker) he will guide you as to how you can prepare yourself to be able to get a loan. FHA guidelines are easier to work with. Dave number is 949-939-6011.
