Self-Employed Workers Face Mortgage Hurdles - WSJ Article

April 19th, 2018 | self-employed borrower, bank statement loan, Mortgage Loan Process, Traditional Mortgage

It is true that the Self Employed borrower normally hits a wall when it comes to qualifying for a mortgage when asked for their Federal tax returns. The process by which your accountant works their magic is the often the exact opposite of what the lenders want to see with regards to income. After a long exercise of averaging income in conjunction with preparing a year to date profit and loss and reviewing allowable add backs the self-employed borrower usually gets stuck not qualifying. The borrowers run businesses and earn income but they just are unable to satisfy the lender requirements for a mortgage. For this reason, we now have options that allow us to step away from income and focus strictly on cash flow. We can help you get qualified for a competitive mortgage with your business cash flow without the need or demand for Federal tax returns or the 4506 form.
