How can my husband and I get approved if he's the one working but I have the better credit?My husband and I are looking into buying in Orange County, NY. His credit is in the mid to low 600's. He is an RN and has a lot of student loans. My score is in the 700's but I am not working because I go to school and take care of my son. Any advice on how we can get into a house or the steps we need to take, would be greatly appreciated.
