In order to finance through a bank or mortgage lender you would need a 2 yr. work history plus at least a 3.5% down payment. your income would need to be sufficient to make the mortgage payments plus insurance,taxes & maintenance on the property. I suggest you wait until you graduate,establish yourself in a job & have improved your credit. You are not in a position to purchase now,but you can make this happen in a few years. Good luck!
