Good afternoon Victor,

PayPal is not recognized as a regular bank account. PayPal is a payment method and is linke to a traditional bank account. We would want to verify the traditional bank account.

My recommendation is to sit down face to face with a Mortgage Banker and get thoroughly prequalified based on your total financial picture: Income, Assets, and Credit.
