With 20% downpayment, he'd approve just about anyone else. Truth is, anything below 600 is now going to require a large downpayment and usually means you can only get an ARM, not a fixed rate.

I think with 25% down, most of the risk is eliminated. If the mortgage company forecloses on the home, then they can sell it and wont lose much if any money.

However, I am not a mortgage professional, so I defer, but again, for curiosity's sake, what kind of interest rate would that be????
