I think it depends on what you want to buy. There are a wide variety of houses in this area....from ones that are pretty beat up and need fixing, to ones that are more or less new.
So as others have mentioned, it's best to get preapproved first, then go shopping to see what your purchase price will buy you. As long as you don't have a lot of debt and you have employment I think you are on the right track.
