I make 26,000 a year. I have no car payment but i do have a student loan which is in deferment. Do I stand a chance of qualifying for a home loan? I'm currently paying 920 per month for rent for the past three years and was never late.

P.S I live in west palm beach but don't necessary have to buy here.

Lisa, your best bet is to consult a mortgage lender. Once you give them all of your information they can make a decision and qualify you and tell you what you can afford. Good luck.

Hi Lisa,
You may well qualify for an FHA loan. Some lenders will consider a middle score of 620 or higher. Your limitations will be your income and your student loans. While they are in deferment now, the payment will likely be factored in lowering your borrowing capacity.
I would encourage you to go over this in detail with a mortgage broker. They can either get you approved, or prepare you to be approved sooner rather than later.
