Much will depend on your debt amount, overall finances, money down, credit score, etc.--visit with any qualified loan officer(s) first, see if you do qualify and how much--keep in mind that lenders have their income v. debt criteria for qualifying for the amount of a mortgage—oftentimes requiring that housing costs are not in excess of one-third of gross income in addition to a stipulated income v. overall debt-ratio. What lenders don’t know are borrowers’ non-debt spending habits, present and anticipated. You, the borrower, need to consider the economic factors of your lifestyle that would impact on your individual comfort level of affordability. A mortgage outside your budgetary constraints can dramatically alter your overall living conditions. So, be sure to factor micro and macro economic concerns into your mortgage amount deliberations.

Honestly, this purchase may not be possible from the information you listed.

Your best bet would be to sit down with a lender and go over all your financial inquiries. They would be able to assess your finances better with more information. Your area may also have some low-income programs available.

Best of luck!
