There are lots of other factors: what is your current total debt and the associated payments? What are the condo fees? what are the taxes? All these things go into determining your ratios. Also is the condo FHA approved? Go to HUD.gov to check it out as it has to be FHA approved in order to use an FHA loan . This applies to condo's, not town homes or villas or single family homes.
$60k household income is low for that size mortgage even if you have zero debt. It is probably not doable unless the taxes and insurance and maintenance fees are also extremely low.
