Mortgage w/ 629-650, 20% down?

2) gotten myself added as auth user on an aged, perfect history account w/$ 10k limit and minimal balance
3) paid off the two collections items on my report, one in full, the other settled for less.
I now have no unresolved bad debt, and as for credit I’ve got an auto loan in good standing and now this new auth user account.
My income-to-loan ratio is very good and I can put 20% down.

I have just started pre-approval shopping. Any advice? Any thoughts about my chances for approval?
