You must have a minimum credit score of 640
Typically they want you to have a 2 year work history, does not have to be on same job, and the house payment should not be more than 1/3 of your gross income. For example, if you make 2k gross a month, then your max house payment should be around $700-800 range.
As far assets, you typically don’t need a down payment, but it is always good to show at least 2 months reserves in the bank.
You will have to pay for an appraisal fee of $325, and home inspection of $400-350 typically, but this is usually the only out of pocket costs.
