That is a wide open question that depends upon several factors:
1) Your credit score
2) Your downpayment
3) Primary or secondary residence.
The answers to these three will get you started.
IF your credit score is good and you have a min. 20% down for a primary residence, you should not have too much problem. If is not a primary residence, you better have an excellent credit rating and atleast 30% down.
Also, be prepared to provide every kind of financial information that you can possibly imagine and allow for 60+ days to get the loan closed.
est of luck...

thanks for your answer. Not exactly sure yet what my credit score is but it's very good if not excellent. (have had a mortgage for over 25 years and NEVER have missed a payment!) This will not be my Primary Residence YET. I am not of retirement age yet but do have plenty saved for that period of time and can prove that.

Why the need for 30% downpayment if not a Primary Residence?
