Can I Purchase A House Having a SSI Income?I was interested in possible buying a home but was unsure if I could because of my permanent disability income ($730). I was thinking it would have to be through FHA. I recently had a pre-purchase counseling session and was told by the credit counselor that I could in fact purchase a house because of my credit score (724) but I would need to work on my back-end DTI. Also, that I should go for a conventional loan because the monthly payments would be cheaper opposed to an FHA.Now that all was great, or so I thought until I started calling lenders from the PHFA site. The 3 lenders I spoke with told me that my income was too low for a mortgage. Now I'm confused and disappointed. I worked hard to get my credit score up. Was researching and came across, "Home Possible Mortgages" through Freddie Mac. I was wondering if I qualified for that program or any others someone may know of?October 08 2013 - Philadelphia22YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
