Hello David,

You can absolutely purchase a property with this type of retirement income and these credit scores. My name is Jake Johnson, and I work for a lender that is in 29 states including New York and Florida where I am licensed in both. Many lenders will have trouble with a 600 credit score, however, we are what is called "Ginnie Mae approved" and an expert in lower credit score loans. I work in Manhattan, so please give me a call at any time at 646-737-4481. I look forward to planning out this move into retirement for you!

Thanks again,

David, I would recommend that you speak with a mortgage broker and figure out what your monthly payments would be and then determine if you have enough left to maintain the lifestyle you would like to have. Then, if you feel it's do-able, give a good Realtor a call and start the search for your retirement home.

Good luck.
