Hi, I know that you will probably need at least 20%-25% down because its a 2nd home. You will have to check with a lender. If you do decide to purchase, you can give me a call at 203-218-2229. I would be happy to assist you.

A good first step would be to contact a loan officer. He/she can review your credit score, income, including rentals, down payment, and debts to determine what you can qualify for. Once you know that you can start shopping.
