First time home buyer question!?

I am a 22 year old student looking to purchase my first home. I do not know how to go about this! I am meeting with an agent to view the house next week but I don't even know what to ask her. I have good but little credit. It is a foreclosure sale which I hear are harder to get? My parents have excellent credit... show more I am a 22 year old student looking to purchase my first home. I do not know how to go about this! I am meeting with an agent to view the house next week but I don't even know what to ask her. I have good but little credit. It is a foreclosure sale which I hear are harder to get? My parents have excellent credit and are willing to sign with me, although I am still unsure if that will help. I make roughly 1000 a month and the mortgage is 800. I would be having a roommate move in with me also. Where do I begin and what are my chances? I could only put 5% down but I know as a first time home buyer in CA you do not need one. THANKS
