  • Go see someone that does loans...they will help you. They like a low debt to income ratio, meaning you don't have craploads of bills. You also have to fall within income guidelines, don't know if 45K is too much or not...it's been awhile since I researched this. But if you're making 45K why can't you just save up the 3K? That's really not that much!

  • 10:48 pm, $45K is not that much money, if you consider it is Bakersfield, California.
