Your income and current debts will determine how much you qualify to purchase. Your payment history (credit score) will determine the interest rate you qualify for.
If you would like to know what properties would fall into the price range you are interested in please set of your own private login and search criteria on my web site. You can save favorites and your search criteria will be saved so you don't have to re-enter it every time you visit. If you would like more information I am available by email, phone or via the web site below. I can set up searches for you and send them to you via email as properties come available.
A lot of times buyers want to know agents come recommended or with good references. You may see mine at http://www.qualityservice.org. I have a Platinum rating (the best score possible) as collected from an independent research firm by surveying my past clients. Those ratings are posted publically for all to see at the quality service site. You'll enter my name and state to view my scores.
Your credit score is great. And now is a great time to buy! I wish you well whatever your decision.

There aint no such thing as a free lunch!
Yes you can buy a crack house for 8K, , yes, you can buy a tax lien on a 200K house, hold the note for 3 to 5 years and get the house
The reality that you will get a great house in a great neighborhood for 100K less than what its worth is slim
that is a manufactured home and most likely does not include the space on which it sits!! As soon as you get your job situation settled, I would immediately contact a mortgage broker (please go to http http://:www.janeesejackson.com and click "My Resource Guide" on the left nav bar for a list of very qualified mortgage brokers) and get pre-approved. I agree that a credit score like that makes you prime for qualifying in this market. The next step would be to enlist the services of a real estate broker (and, of course, I'd be happy to help). Feel free to utilize my property search site at http://www.fabulousportland.com . It's free and user-friendly and you can select certain neighborhoods and your preferred price point. Interest rates are very low, prices are very low....it's a good time to get into your first home....

My rent is $550 month utilities included for a one room place. If I bought a house, I'd just be looking for something basic - small is fine, low price is the biggest factor, location of about 10 miles or less to downtown Portland is also something I'd like.
This one is listed not as a foreclosure and is listed at about $20,000
Is that price legit?
This home is worth about $150,000 and may be listed. Sorry that Trulia and Realty Trac are making things so confusing for people.
Great Credit Score! You should be a buyer right now. How much is your rent? I bet you could buy less than rent. Let me know what you think!
