Yes, most likely you can get a loan with low income as long as you have a good credit rating. I work with a lender at Wells Fargo that can explore financing with you and determine what you qualify to purchase. If you want more information please contact me and I will connect with a lender.

Try Peter Boyle has 18 years in the business and a lot of expereince with affordable housing finance, If you're looking to buy, but can't get financing, you may want to think about a contract-for-deed. See Two very experienced professionals.

Best of luck.

Hey, Matthew!
I think you should talk with a loan officer. There's a kind of triangle of necessities to get a loan 1.Downpayment money 2.Good credit scores (at least in the 600s) 3.Good income. If you have the first 2, your income will dictate the amount you can spend on a property. Be aware, buying houses that are VERY low priced (meaning under $75,000) may present problems in securing a mortgage at all. Many lenders do not want to do loans that low as it's not worth their while.
Good luck!

It depends on how low your income is. you need a 620 credit score plus a 3.5% dpwn payment for an FHA. all others require 10% down plus a 720 credit score. you need a 2 yr. work history plus an acceptable debt to income ratio/ do you have sufficient income to meet the monthy note plus taxes,insurance & maintenance?If the roof or furnace needs to be replaced 6 mos. down the road can you cover this?Home ownership is not for everyone. it may not be in your best interests.

The short answer is it depends. Working with a loan officer to discuss your ability to purchase, your comfort level with payments, and your credit score will provide you the best answer.
