If I own a house, will this asset help me sponsor my immigrating parents for U.S. residence?

I am a U.S. citizen, who has filed an immigrant petition to sponsor my parents to get U.S. green cards. They are both retired, and coming to the U.S. from China. I work doing childcare at a nonprofit. My salary is $19,000 a year. I’ve discovered that this is too low to sponsor my parents with – I need about $5,000 per year more. I’m willing to look for another job if I have to, but do I really have to? What about the fact that I own a condo, which is approximately half paid for?
