That is very low income. You would not be able to afford much.Start saving up for your down payment and closing costs. I'd recommend you plan to put 10% to 20% down and have an additional 5% for closing costs. I'd alreo suggest that you have a cash emergency fund of 3 to 6 month's expenses.Once you have this in place, start looking. Your realtor and mortgage broker should be able to help you determine what you can afford, but keep in mind they are out to make money. If they tell you you can afford $2,000 a month, you know that is not true.
