Darlenlabady,
Take Donna's advice and speak with a mortgage officer. The mortgage officer should also be able to give you an underwritten preapproval so you can shop in confidence.

And Mr. Ross is correct that you could go up to $250k if your total debts are under $500 per month. This is assuming 4.25% FHA loan

Assuming $6500 in taxes, $750 in insurance, $800 in total monthly debt eg. car payment, credit cards, and student loans. Putting 3.5% you would be approved for no more then $200k at a rate of 4.25%

Hi Darlene,
The amount you will be approved for will really depend on a number of other variables such as, how much other debt you have, how your income is reported on your tax returns, and a number of other factors. The best thing for you to do is find a reputable lender and sit down with them to go over all of your details. That way, when you begin your home search, you will really know exactly what you can afford and you won't be disappointed or waste your time looking at properties that may actually be out of your financial reach.
When the time comes to search the Union marketplace, don't hesitate to contact me! I am an expert in this market area. Best wishes and good luck!

You will get approved for $200K-$250 and it doesn't limit you to only Union. You may find more homes that are to your liking in other areas but if you prefer Union you could find a 3-4 bedroom 2 or more bath home in that price range. If you would like to discuss your situation please let me know when your available to talk.
