Mortgages for Self
Employed Borrowers

Are you self employed and looking for a purchase or cash-out refinance? Can’t qualify with your tax returns?

Refinance or Purchase Mortgages with Limited or No Verified Income Check

It can be very difficult for self-employed people to qualify for a mortgage loan because business owners often have lots of write-offs or fluctuating income, and mortgage companies will deny the loan based on the income that is reflected on the tax return. There may also be further requirements that only apply with the individual self-employed borrower’s financial picture.

For alt doc mortgages the interest rate is a bit higher and a greater down payment may be required, but a slightly higher monthly payment is far outweighed by a business’s ability to get ahead and capitalize on business tax deductions. Proceeds from refinances can also be invested into your business.

Bank Statement Programs

For the self employed borrowers looking to purchase the most common way to get you approved is to use your bank statements over the last only 1 (our closest option to no income verified), 12 or 24 months and qualify you based off the gross deposits only.  We can go as little as 10% down with no MI, no tax returns and no P & L. If you are looking to refinance we can do a complete stated loan option as well without any bank statements on a primary residence or investment prop. Additionally, we have foreign national programs without any income verification and asset depletion formula based lending for high net worth borrowers.

Common Questions:

How are stated income loans back again?

Stated income loans have a bad reputation due to their abuse that contributed to the housing crash. The backlash from the Dodd-Frank Act to do away with these alternative loan types left non-traditional homebuyers without any options, which is really unfair. Not everyone fits into cookie cutter guidelines. Hardworking self-employed people and investors who risk their own capital should not be penalized for the bad actions of a few! Recognizing the gap in the market, some banks and lenders decided to restructure the programs and provide these loan types again within Dodd-Frank rules. These are not the toxic “liar loans” from years past, they are fully compliant with federal law so that both the borrower and lender are protected.

Who offers stated income loans?

These loans are typically offered by small to mid-sized lenders who have specialty wholesale programs that do not work directly with the public. Your big name banks do not deal with these loans because the underwriting guidelines are so specific to each individual borrower, are not one of their portfolio products, and they are not sold to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. You need to work with a knowledgeable broker who will evaluate and expertly match your financial situation with the best specialty program that fits your needs. We are partnered with every wholesale lender and every program out there.

Do the loans require perfect credit or a huge down payment?

No! We have access to every program out there and will let you know right away if it can be done. Difficult loan situations are our specialty! Most of our clients are not who you would consider “ideal”. Most of the time they have called every bank out there and have just about given up before they find us. Every single day we deal with clients who have low credit, recent bankruptcy or foreclosure, fluctuating income, businesses less than two years old, divorce/alimony, and many other challenges. We have dealt with every scenario you can imagine. If the deal can be done, we will get it done!

Are there any hidden charges or fees? Aren't the interest rates outrageous? Will I be able to afford my payments?

You may have noticed that we don’t advertise any teaser rates on our website. Those are deceptive business practices and our pet peeve is hearing about people being bait-and-switched by other banks. There is nothing more important to us than ethics and doing right by our clients who we treat like family. There are no up-front fees or prepayment penalties and we have a responsibility to disclose everything to you up front. Especially when dealing with loan products that can be complicated, you need someone in your corner. People are pleasantly surprised at how affordable our programs really are!

Our goal is to put you in a house that you can afford and make you happy. We build personal relationships with each of our clients and we would never put your family or business in jeopardy. Our reputation is everything and every week we receive many referrals and repeat business from past clients. Please check out our testimonials page to read comments from some of our happy clients.

If I'm not pre-approved for a stated income loan, does that mean I will not be able to buy a home or get my cashout loan?

Not necessarily. We have many options to cover you in the meantime until we can get you approved. We have saved many purchase contracts and real estate investment deals from falling apart. We have saved people’s businesses from bankruptcy by getting cashout refinances done too. Again, we have access to every program out there and that includes bridge loans, hard money lenders and private investors, which are all lifesaving resources in the right situation.
