I guess lenders aren't doing them, or you'd have had at least a few responses.
When there's risk to a potential creditor, in this case you can't prove you'll be able to make the loan payments, you'll need to lessen the risk to the lender somehow. For loans, it's usually in the form of higher interest rates. If your only source for a loan is private money, from a private lender/investor, you'll be paying a LOT more in interest, which will lessen the amount you can pay for your property.
My suggestion would be to work on getting employment that will be enough to qualify for the loan amount on the home you want. I know it's more difficult now, but you do have a nice amount of money for a down payment, and if you can add to that, you'll be able to buy in two years, the amount of time lenders want to see you employed. $70K is enough for a 20% down payment on a conventional loan for a $350K home. Your payment would be roughly $1725/mo, so that's the payment you'd have to qualify for. If you're buying a condo, you'd have to take the HOA fee into consideration, so your purchase price would be less. Or, could buy something for less anyway, and have a higher down payment, and that will lower your monthly payment, so your income could be less.
Good luck to you, and let me know if you have any more questions.
