HI Mariela,

It depends on the purchase price.

Generally, you can expect for a lender to approve you for 3-4x your GROSS annual income for a loan.

So, if you earn $40,000 per year, you will likely be approved for a loan of $120,000- $160,000.

Of course, there are many other factors a lender will consider when qualifying you: your debt to income ratio, your credit score, your employment, and much more.
