You do, but with your income, you're going to be limited as far as what you can buy.  They won't include the income from the second job, as you haven't held the second job long enough for it to count. 

I would focus on getting my scores to the 640 range, also, you want to look around and see if you can qualify for a down payment assistance program, or some sort of housing grant program to help you out cost wise...  first though, concentrate on getting your scores up.  I think you could be there score wise by paying off your credit cards...

 

How much cash do you have in reserves?>

When I see your post, programs like habitat for humanity come to mind, where you invest sweat equity into helping build your house, and you get an interest free mortgage. You basically put in volunteer hours and establish a savings account to demonstrate the ability to save... Using this program, you get a nice house to live in, that is energy efficient, at a reasonable cost, with a reasonable down payment... I fully support this program.

Nice!  You should be able to do a USDA loan or an FHA, have you talked to a lender yet?

His concern is still income though. At $17,000, he isn't going to be able to qualify for much of anything.

That's why I think he should look at H4H...  They will work with him I'm sure...  They've built tons of homes in my city

Re: What Are My Chance To Get Approved

I think you should talk to a lender and also check habitat for humanity; and your local housing agency to see if they can help you with a low income mortgage. Your scores and savings are there. Your income is the issue.
