Even though we normally can answer your questions with the information that most people include in the original post, I just wanted to provide a list of information that the people who answer questions normally will need to give you complete, accurate advice on your chances of being able to qualify for a mortgage. Remember, the more information that you share, the more information that can be shared back with you.
1. Mortgage Credit Scores:
Of course not all of that covers every person's situation, so feel free to elaborate on your own if you think there are important details that should be known, such as buying your new primary residence in another state, having a co-signer, buying a home from someone you are related to, the home you are buying is on an Indian reservation, you are employed by family, you aren't a US Citizen, your employment will start after you are buying, your down payment is coming from your current home when it sells, the seller is crediting you $5k towards your closing costs... just to name a couple. Even if you think something is not important, don't leave it out, as it might have a bigger impact than you think.
