Lived abroad for five years, now back in the US, is a mortgage possible?We have an unusual situation. I'm a US citizen, married a Brit, moved to the UK for five years (rented the entire time). Then, last year, we moved to the US. We spent most of last year either unemployed or working part-time. I now have a full-time job back at my old employer (before I got married). My husband has been working as a substitute for the past year while attending night school for his US teacher certification. We hope to get an FHA loan with about $5,000 downpayment towards a $100k home. Is this even possible? How long would it take to get approved assuming my husband get a full-time teaching job in the next month or two? Although I've been out of the country for several years, I kept my bank account/credit card and have a credit score in the high 700s. Husband has no US credit history. Just got his first credit card 6 mo. ago. We do not have a car loan. Essentially, we are starting from scratch.
