Most Mortgage lenders are looking for a credit score of 620 or better. If you are close to limit on credit cards pay them off. If you owe any money and are in collections pay that off . Make sure all your payments are on time. And if you have had any past due payment that were 90 days late in the last year or two depending on the lender you will have a hard time getting a loan. Personally I would wait to try and get a loan until your score is higher you will get a better mortgage rate.

It looks like your income is high enough, depending on how much house you're trying to buy. Mortgage companies will look at length of time employed, verifiable salary and MOST IMPORTANT with your credit score....amount of downpayment.
