The Self-Employed Challenge
Self-employment comes with incredible freedom, but when it comes to mortgage applications, it can be a complex process. Traditional lenders often require extensive documentation, making it challenging for self-employed individuals to qualify.
Why Choose Us?
Our team is well-versed in the unique financial situations of self-employed individuals. We work closely with you and your accountant to ensure your income is correctly documented for mortgage lenders, maximizing your chances of approval. For Self Employed, generally the minimum down payment is 10% of the purchase price up to $1M purchase price with a credit score over 680. If this is not the case, there are still options with an Alternative Mortgage that has more relaxed guidelines than going through the stress test. In this case, borrowers need a minimum of 20% down payment.
