Self Employment Mortgage
If you’re self-employed, you may already know how difficult it can be to secure a mortgage or to refinance your home. Self employment means banks can require far more documentation than the typical buyer, including tax returns and proof of long term business health. This can be an insurmountable hurdle for many.
Fortunately, new laws have recently gone into effect, reducing the burden placed on small business owners in three big ways:
- Self-employed buyers who don’t have a history of paying themselves through payroll now only have to prove that they have access to business income.
- Self-employed buyers now only have to provide one year of tax returns to prove income levels high enough to pay the mortgage.
- Buyers who have a full time job, but also own a business on the side no longer have to prove any income from that side business. They can be qualified simply based on their primary job.
These new guidelines do only pertain to traditional home loans. So prospective VA, FHA, and other borrowers still have to meet the guidelines for those programs.
