Police officer looking for some home buying advice!

Hey guys first time posting in this subreddit. Me and my wife were looking into buying a home but are still iffy on how much we can afford and what our mortgage/utilities would look like. I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to finances.

Let me give you a little background on who are we are and our finances.

I'm currently a 25 year old sworn police officer in northern Virginia that recently came off of active duty military. I make about 56500 before taxes not including the bit of overtime I'm allotted. My wife is a student at a local college and is hoping to go to medical school.

We own both our vehicles and have put away little over 120k over the past few years. We both have over 775 credit scores and don't go out much. My paycheck every 2 weeks ends up around $1600-1700.

Any advice is appreciated!
