Hi Dfrascati,
Sounds like you could qualify for a mortgage. However lenders will also take into consideration other additional aspects such as your overall debt ratio, savings, etc...

It is best to contact a local mortgage broker to provide you with a pre-approval letter. In general any good realtor should be able to give you the contact of a few mortgage brokers. Getting pre-approved for a loan is an important step towards buying a home, make sure you work with someone you feel comfortable with.

If you are not currently working with a real estate agent, I would be happy assist you.

Much Success, :)
