Being self-employed can be challenging for home buyers. We regularly receive information from mortgage brokers about various programs, including those for self-employed buyers. Here's one example from a lender which, given the competitive nature of the industry, may be indicative of what a self-employed buyer will encounter when seeking a mortgage lender.
A" side Lenders with as low as 10% Down Payment.
This Self Employed program is designed for self-employed borrowers who are unable to provide traditional income verification but have a proven 2-year history of managing their credit and finances responsibly.
Eligible borrowers typically own a small size business for a minimum of two years, which can be confirmed via a third-party arm’s length document.
In addition, the borrower is required to declare their annual income and annual business revenue, which should be reasonable based on the industry, length of operation and type of business.
