Home Buying—questions & answers, advice and opinions page 715

Is there any way my fiancé and I can get a mortgage if he has good credit, but I have no history?
He is eligible for a VA loan, but we've both had housing through our work the past three years, and therefore don't have any rental history. We're not in debt and pay all our bills on time. Is this possible?
I found a condo in Spring Valley that I want to follow, but can't get back to it. It was in a development called Mara La Go.
I'm just looking as I have a home in Washington State that I need to do some upgrades then sell.
