We recieve $2056 a month $514 individually. Im tired of renting and would like a yard for them. Is it possible for me to get approved for a loan of 35k or less with this income?

Help the community by answering this question:


You should be able to as long as they are under 15 years old. With Social Security income, you must have continued recript of it for at least 36+ months. To meet this requirement, they could not turn 18 before that time.
