I am still a student so I dont have any income other than fin aid and loans. He makes about 45 K a year. I do graduate in december of this year, so once I do graduate we should be doing well. It is on the market for 140K, hubby was military, so has a certificate for a VA loan. My credit is good, 660 and hubby's not so good at 590. Wondering if anyone could give me any advice. Is this something we should even be looking into right now since I dont have an income yet. I mean we do rent so we would be paying the same with the exception of the income of the rental unit. We have about 5 K saved so that would help if we came into a crunch. We were also hoping to get 100% financing. Any info would be great!!
