With the information you provided, yes, it looks like you could qualify for $185K. However, I would need a little more information, like what additional monthly debt you have. The credit scores sound good, and your wages can handle that payment. Depending on the program, you can go USDA with zero down, in qualified areas, FHA, with 3.5% down, or possibly Home Path, with as little as 3% down. Please call me to discuss the details of your situation and to get prequalified! 678.493.3366. Christina Murphy

You sure can!! I would love to help you!! You can put down as little as 3.5% of the sales price, so you on a $185,000 you would need around $6500.Please call me when you get a chance at 404-386-9183!!

We cannot say for sure unless we see your complete profile, however based on the information you provided, you would qualify.. FHA Requires 3.5% down or if you purchase a HUD home in some area's the down payment can be as little as $100 down. Conventional financing requires a minimum of 3% down, but the monthly mortgage insurance would be very high... your better off with FHA if you don't have at least 10% to put down.. WilliamAcres.com

Credit scores are only part of the formula. You and your wife have good scores, and your income appears sufficient. Other questions are what other debts do you have, since this is your first home, it's safe to assume you do not have a foreclosure, and with your scores, a bankruptcy in the last 3 years is probably unlikely. So the answer is Yes, you probably would qualify. My advice is to find a local Mortgage Banker/Broker to work with. I would avoid one of the big banks since as a general rule, many of them are simply order takers. When you work with a licensed Mortgage Loan Originator, you are working with a professional that has been Trained, Tested and Licensed.
