All lenders are different and can have different standards/requirements. I recommend that you check out other lenders as well to see what can be done for you. It always helps to get a second opinion.&nbsp;The best thing for you to do is to speak with a knowledgeable lender to see if you can get started on financing a new home.&nbsp;If you need additional assistance, feel free to reach out. Good luck!
