There have been so many highs and lows in this home buying process and right now we're at a particularly low ebb.
Despite my student loans, I would consider myself to be credit worthy. I have had the same job for 5 years and been in my chosen field for 7 years. I repay my bills on time and have a 800 point credit score. I have two credit cards, but mostly rely on one card for recurring monthly bills. I pay my bills on time. I have been careful with money, putting away a portion of my paycheck each month into an high interest savings account. It’s daunting to me that I have yet to receive mortgage commitment.
