Consider employment before making any purchase; lenders have their income v. debt criteria for qualifying for the amount of a mortgage—oftentimes requiring that housing costs are not in excess of one-third of gross income in addition to a stipulated income v. overall debt-ratio. What lenders don’t know are borrowers’ non-debt spending habits, present and anticipated. You, the borrower, need to consider the economic factors of your lifestyle that would impact on your individual comfort level of affordability. A mortgage outside your budgetary constraints can dramatically alter your overall living conditions. So, be sure to factor micro and macro economic concerns into your mortgage amount deliberations.

Sophiaolga,
Do you have a reliable source of income? If you have a job, you may find a loan. Your score isn't bad, but it could be improved too.
If you are a non-working full time student, how would you be paying a mortgage? Student loans, grants and scholarships would not be considered as income for mortgage approval.
