When it comes to financing a home mortgage, borrowers may not always think outside the box. Conventional, FHA, VA, and USDA loans are on everyone’s radar. But not everyone fits into those boxes. Self-employed, property investors, and contractors may have good credit, but they have unique financial circumstances; and they often run into obstacles because they may not have the employment documentation required for traditional mortgage programs.
Our Simple Access® portfolio offers creative, common sense financing programs that allow alternative documentation to help borrowers qualify for a mortgage.
What is Alternative Documentation?
Where traditional mortgage programs require tax returns or documentation that is verifiable by a third-party, alternative documentation programs allow the borrower to provide other financial documents like W-2s, paycheck stubs, bank and investment statements, and even future earnings to help them qualify for a mortgage program. Luxury’s Simple Access® programs can help give freelancers, investors, and contractors access to financing outside the traditional box. Here’s a look at our programs.
Bank Statement Loans
Our Non-QM Bank Statement loan is designed for self-employed and consumers with complex financial situations who may qualify for the loan based on deposits in bank accounts instead of W2 income or tax returns. To qualify, borrowers must have a minimum of one year self-employment history, be able to provide 12 or 24 months of business and personal bank statements, and a signed CPA letter verifying their business.
Some of the highlights include:
- Loan amounts up to $3.5M
- Fixed and adjustable-rate options
- Available for all occupancy types including primary residence, second home or investment property
1099 Only Loans
Our Non-QM 1099 Only mortgage program is designed exclusively for self-employed, freelancers, and those with a seasonal income to qualify for a home loan using their bank statements instead of their tax returns. Borrowers need to have been self-employed for a minimum of one year, with prior related experience and have a minimum credit score of 620 (subject to loan amount and loan-to-value (LTV) restrictions). Qualification is determined solely on the last two years of 1099 forms.
