You should not publish such personal information on the website such as your credit score, you might want to consider removing it from your ??. As to if what you can qualify for in terms of purchase price you should speak to a loan officer or mortgage broker. There are many factors that go into qualifing for a loan. Before you begin your home search it would be good to have a pre-qualification or pre-approval letter. One is more in depth than the other a loan officer could explain the difference. You should pick your loan person carefully as you do not want to run your credit report multiple times as it could impact your score. (You running a free credit report directly from the 3 major creditors does not impact your score). Another good thing would be to select an agent to work with once you have decided which area you want to live in. You might visit several areas and ask an office in each area for listings in your price range. Drive around the area and decide if it is where you want to live. Once you pick where you want to live either interview a couple agents to be sure you find one who fits your needs or get a recommendation for an agent from a friend or family member. If you choose to interview an agent let them know up front that is what you are doing.
You are off to a great start if you are already working as a nurse and have solid employment and saved up for downpayment . you might be cutting it really close even if you are doing an FHA loan with 3.5% downpayment. There are too many variables to consider with your loan to give you a simple answer. Your top priority at this moment should be a meeting with a very good loan agent to start your preapproval process. A loan broker can let you know if you need to save more money
and if any adjustments need to be made to your plans.

I work for a Direct Mortgage Lender and I can get you approved for financing on the home you wish. Putting $20-25K on a $350-400K home would be a good down payment for a FHA loan which only requires a minimum down payment of 3.5%. I understand you haven't checked your credit in a few years but as long as your credit is above 640 your still in the green. If you have not found a house yet or realtor to assist you, i know a few great realtors that can find you the dream house your looking for. Please when you get a chance give me a call and we can get your approved for financing. Talk soon.

Having just worked with someone in almost the same situation as yourself. I can tell you, that you have all you need in the basics to qualify for this loan on the home in the price range you mentioned.
Here's a few suggestions on what else you might want to put together in the meantime, that loan brokers/lenders seem to ask for pretty regularly.
1) Youll want at least one year of bank statements
2) All documents regarding investments and such.
3) Collect all W-2 Forms, or whatever you are sent at the end of each year from your employer.
4) Call a bank of lender and get a pre-approval letter for the amount you plan to spend on a home.
this way when you go to submit your offers you will be 100 % ready to open escrow if you find something you like.
Its a good idea to have an agent work with you in the preceeding before you are ready to help familarize yourself with area's that you might consider, and get to know prices. This way you wont overpay, and maybe find a great deal for yourself. I like to email my clients listings in areas they prefer, in order to help them begin to get familar and help to narrow down their searches.
Feel free to contact me anytime, and Id be glad to help you!
