A good website to go to is they have calculators to see what house payments will be based on entering different interest rates and amount of loan. Probably a loan to be covered by that monthly amount depending on whether you are including property taxes and insurance, might be around $100-125K. As to your credit, you need to hook up with a friendly mortgage broker that also knows a little about credit repair and help you make a plan to improve your situation.

I am a Realtor & an Attorney licensed only in OH & I don't represent you, so what I write are my personal opinions. I suggest that you select a local lender to handle your transaction.

Agreen - Good evening. Depending on your situation with your credit you may be able to buy a home now or you may have to wait for a period of time to get a mortgage. As far as how you go about getting in touch with someone you should try and find a mortgage professional you trust that can walk you through all your options on buying a home. There are various mortgage products on the market now that still work quite well for someone in the position you mention that you are in. I have referrals for mortgage professionals everyday and would love to pass you over to someone if you would give me a call to discuss more of the particulars of your scenario. Good luck. I hope this helps. ... more
