Wow! You sure did get quite a few really good responses to your question already. The first step I would suggest you take is find a Realtor you feel comfortable with, and talk to them personally. Let them give you a step by step run thru of the home buying process, help you find a good loan officer, and figure out what you can afford. Then they can start showing you examples of whats on the market right now in your price range and preferred areas. You should ALWAYS try, you never know what you can do if you don't try to do it! If you haven't found a Realtor yet, I'd be happy to help you, just give me a call or shoot me an email. Good Luck!
