Hi Sheila!

You should first check your credit. You can get a non-binding good faith estimate from a local Lender. Do you know your credit score? Norm FHA is requiring a 620 minimum FICO.

I have a good Lender contact in Killeen and she is great to work with. If you would like her info, please let me know.

Now is a great time to buy, as you may know. There is the First-Time Buyer tax credit, low interest rates, abundant inventory, and eager Sellers.

You could also rent for awhile, work on your credit, and re-establish yourself in the process. I also have rental property in Temple and perhaps could work with you to get you into a rental, while working on your credit, to eventually purchase your own home.

Please let me know if I can assist you.
