Buying a home

Answer #1

No I’m sorry with that much debt the numbers don’t work. You can only have debts of about $1,688 a month and that includes the $860 of current debt. Best bet is to help your wife pay off some of her debt. Don’t focus on more of a down payment, sounds like it’s more important to pay off the debt. I hope this was helpful.

Thanks,
