The short answer is "yes," your husband can buy a home without you on the loan, so long as he qualifies based on his sole income, assets and credit. However, beware of one guideline for FHA loans --- if, in fact, he ends up pursuing an FHA loan. California is a community property state. Therefore, your liabilities will be factored into his qualification EVEN IF you are not on the loan. Your credit scores will not be factored into the loan underwriting, but your monthly payments will be. Therefore, be sure your loan officer is taking this into consideration.
If you are not yet working with someone you trust, I would be happy to be of service.
