how long do you have to be at a job before you can buy your first home?

Asked by Danika Bechtold, Wed Feb 20, 2008

im looking to buy my first house but have only been at my current job for about a year. I have good credit but didn't know if the job thing would stop me from buying a house..?

That depends. Did you go to college prior for the same field? Was your previous job in the same field? Lenders are usually looking for 2 years...but that can be pulled together with school and previous positions, if they are in your current field.
