If you’re self-employed, have 1099 income, or don’t have traditional income, it can be tough to buy a home. You might have a high income and excellent credit, but unless you can prove it with tax returns, getting approved for a mortgage can be challenging. Fortunately, t. are options for people in your situation. Here’s what you need to know about each one: Bank Statement Loans You must have been self-employed for at least two years, and you need to provide 12 months’ worth of bank statements showing your income. This is a common way for self-employed people to qualify for a mortgage without tax returns. A bank statement loan is a great loan product for the self-employed, business owners, entrepreneurs, consultants, realtors, and real estate investors.

You’ll need a letter from your CPA stating your expenses. Your income will be based on your 1099 income less your expenses. Watch our video about qualifying for a mortgage with a 1099 income. No-doc Loans The no-doc loan is a type of mortgage that allows borrowers to get a mortgage with little documentation. This means that you don’t need to document your job or your income. You will need to provide some documentation about your assets. What you do need is to have a down payment of 20% or more and you need to have a high enough credit score. The credit score requirements are always changing. Generally, it is above 640. To find out the credit score you need to qualify call us today at (727) 784-5555. With a no-doc loan, your rates will be higher than those on conventional loans because the lender has less .rmation about you and what they’re risking if they approve your application. The interest rate on a no doc loan is usually a point or higher than on a traditional loan. Investment Property Rent Schedules Investment properties with rent schedules allow you to buy an investment property as long as the appraiser’s rent schedule exceeds the mortgage. This can work if you have other income sources like stocks and bonds or rental properties, but don’t have a W-2 or 1099 proof of income. Getting a loan based on rent schedules is also a great option if your income is too low for a mortgage. This is one way to get into real estate investing without tax returns.
