Husband is changing industries, will it be possible to get approved for a mortgage?My husband is about to go back to school to pursue a different industry. He will make substantially more money in his new industry and will be done with school in two years. We would like to get a house in two years. We would love to be able to afford a $200,000-$240,000 home. We can put 10-15% down, have great credit, and together after he switches industries will make about $85,000-$90,000 a year. However, I do have a lot of student loan debt - about $60k which I pay $500 a month towards. No car loans. My husband will have about $40k in debt after he finishes school. While my husband is in school, he will only be able to work part time so he will likely only make $15,000 for the next two years - making our combined annual income around $55,000. What are our chances of getting approved for a mortgage after he graduates and gets a full time job in his industry? How long would he have to be at his new job before we apply? How much will it hurt us that he is changing industries?
