You probably need to be more concerned with your income. For an FHA you really need a 620-640 in most cases but your debt ratio needs to be in line. I would contact a lender to get pre-qualified and what they say you can afford. Then you have to see what you are comfortable with. Just because a bank says you can afford X doesn't mean you want to buy that much house. It's not fun to be house poor.

Best of luck to you.

What I meant about programs is that with an income of$25000/yr is it even possible to purchase a home? Is their a way to maybe get low monthly affordable payments?

600 - 640 FICO Score is the benchmark.
There are a few programs that take lesser scores but they are hard to get.

Programs to help you purchase? What do you mean?
Are you looking for down payment assistance?
Are you looking for a loan tat takes low scores?

Please elaborate.
