Why do we choose this program?
Even though most Americans can easily qualify with full documentations for a conventional house mortgage loan, many still don't fit the Fannie and Freddie guides when it comes to lending requirements. Luckily, Non-QM loans and bank statement income documentation are a great solution for these untraditional borrowers.
Especially, self-employed wage-earners have the luxury to write off many business expenses under the IRS Tax Code. Writing off business expenses from their gross income benefits self-employed wage-earners in paying less in income taxes.
Many self-employed people with shrewd accountants often pay little to no taxes due to taking advantage of the tax codes. Many have negative income. Unfortunately, a lot of write-offs mean self-employed wage-earners have a difficult time qualifying for a mortgage. Traditional lenders will use adjusted gross income when calculating qualified income. Great news for self-employed home buyers with non-QM loans. We have Non-QM mortgages for self-employed borrowers with no income tax returns required. In this article, we will discuss and cover non-QM bank statement mortgages for self-employed borrowers.
Who is this program designed for?
This program is designed for borrowers who are self-employed and would benefit from alternative loan qualification methods. Bank statements may be used as an alternative to tax returns to document a self-employed borrower’s income. Besides, personal and/or business bank statements are all allowed.
At least one of the borrowers must be self-employed for at least 2 years (25% or greater ownership) to qualify for this program. This is standard requirement to determine if the borrower is self-employed borrower. Sometimes, the borrower may own ownership of a business, however, we only count as self- employed borrowers when it’s more than 25%. In agency loans, we always refer to K-1 or Schedule G; while for Non-QM loans, we always need a CPA letter to verify the actual ownership.
Usually, the lender would calculate the qualifying income by taking the average value of bank statement deposits in 12 or 24 months, then multiple a standard expense factor. That should be the borrower’s qualified income for this program.
As for the expense factor, many Non-QM investors may have a standard ratio like 50%. We have this requirement as well. However, if your CPA can provide a letter with appropriate reasons, we may take considerations for a flexible expense factor. Don’t exceed the minimum limits~
