It is possible provided you have steady income, good credit, and little debt. The difficulty lies in the paperwork these days. Be prepared to provide full documentation for everything. Lenders want every page of every bank statement, complete tax returns, any irregularities on your credit report explained, proof that money received was deposited and verification of where it was deposited, etc. Keep a folder handy with all your current paperwork/statements/pay stubs so you are prepared to provide this to the lender - and they will want constant updates. Organization is a key factor in making the loan approval go smoothly.
