Not any harder than an owner occupied, really.
As long as your income can cover both homes, you will be fine.

Dear Jose,
It really depends on your income and whether you can go full doc (show income taxes, bank statements, etc.). on average, nowadays the banks want to see close to 25% down with excellent credit score, full doc. If you can show that you are going to RENT this house, and you already have a good tenant in place for it with a good credit and capable of paying the market rent, then your chances would be much higher to get a loan. Keep in mind that you will not get the prime rate since this is a second home.
