Dan Chase answered:
what is the required combined income for a first time buyer in los angeles county for a home purchase of $250,000?
The general rule of thumb is yearly income x 3 = safe gettable mortgage.

$80k x 3 = $240k.

Your debt, your fico score, your exact circumstances will change the numbers some.

i have an accepted purchase agreement but the house does not say it's pending on the mls. what does this mean?
Take any issue you have first to the agent's broker, and then, if needed go your local board of realtors. In Cincinnati, that is the CABR 761.8800.
