Could we qualify for $125k-$160k FHA Loan?

I'm Self Employed, prior 2 tax returns avail to show $30k income

She's making average of $27k the last 2 years


We're looking next year to 2 years from now and have scores in the 700's

GF might have one collection hit as the O.C didn't send a final bill but it hasn't reported yet


Even if it does, her score will be over 660 by then.


We're looking or FHA and by that point could cover 10% down. We don't want one more than $160k

and are looking $120-$150k range.




PS. I have no debt other than small cc payments, not even $300/m outside of our $1400/m rent

Her debt is only (outside of rent) $228/m for her auto.
