    What Is Your Income

    As a traditional W2 employee (hourly or salary), it is easy for lenders to see how much money you make. If you are self-employed, tipped, commission, or any other type of variable income, it can be challenging.

    This is not because their businesses are not successful, but has more to do with how income is reported and expenses are written off (if you know, you know). With a traditional loans, in order to show your income, there are multiple things you may be asked to provide and should start to gather as you are getting ready to apply for a mortgage. Those items include, but are not limited to:

    • Tax returns
    • Profit and loss statements
    • Your business license
    • Proof of clientele and/or accountant statements
    • Bank statements, assets, other sources of income, etc.

    Even with all that information and documentation it may not be enough, especially if you are able to take advantage of tax code to reduce your on paper income. You may be doing just fine, but according to your tax return, you are broke. This is where finding a local lender that offers, knows, and understands non-tradition mortgage loans is so important.

    No Doc, Stated Income, Sub-prime, Bank Statement, Asset Based, Non-QM

    In the past, non-traditional loans were commonly referred to as sub-prime loans, but that really isn’t a good description.  Today they are known as Non-QM loans, which means Non-Qualified Mortgage. Non-Qualified simply means it doesn’t fit a traditional mortgage box.

    Many of these programs no longer exist, like stated income loans. But other do, and one may be perfect for you.  Check out our special web page for more information on these Non-QM alternative loans.
