Can someone who only receives SSI buy a house?

My father is 66 and lives on SSI of about $2K a month. He has very good credit and has 3.5% ready for a down payment.He is looking to buy a home for about $60K in AZ. Can SSI be used to buy a home?

Yes, he can.  Any chance he is a veteran? If so, he would not need the 3.5% down.  There are homes available in his price range and if he is interested in a 55+ community, he is in luck!

As long as the income is steady and projected to last over at least the next three years, it can be used.
