I agree that talking with a mortgage professional should be your first step. Do know that lenders will use the lowest mid score of all applicants as the basis for underwriting. It would be impossible to determine your purchasing power without knowing much more: debt, savings and length of employment for your husband are good starting points. Contact a mortgage professional to get complete answers to your questions. Best of luck to you!

Hey Nittaya,

You guys can buy a home even though your husband is the only one working. As long as your husband has a minimum credit score of 620 i can get your guys pre approved for a FHA Loan which only requires 3.5% down and you guys can refinance in 6 months. Please give me a call when you get a chance so that we can talk further.

You'll need to get pre-approved. If you have no other debts, lenders can allow up to ~36% of your income for housing costs. Then you need to find what homes at that price point are available for you. Good luck!
