So this is my first post here since joining. Its been only a few days but I've learned quite a bit. Which has been helpful, but yet this whole process seems to overload my brain.
We will be both first time home buyers.
Before I go ahead with prequali's and what not, I wanted to see what the community might think, How much we can get approved for, maybe rates or estimate of it. If we'll get approved at all. I feel our #'s are not that great so I keep feeling like we wont get approved at all.
What areas we might need to improve on, what more info lenders will need from us.
I am thinking my timeframe is about a year. I figure that should come up real quick. Gives us time to save up more and research.
So here is some background on what I am working with. I'll be applying with my wife.
