This will depend on two aspects, one is the time you have been self-employed. Normally lenders want to see 3 years of financials for your company. If you have at least two full years we can normally get you approved if everything else is in good shape. The second issue is how much down payment do you have? The more the better, if you have 25% or more available you will have very little trouble getting a mortgage. If you have less then this but a good history you will likely also qualify.
