B. A copy of your business license and/or a CPA letter confirming self-employment for the last 2 years.
Financing is allowed up to 80% of the property's value for an owner-occupied home. However, if you can afford to put 30% down, we can probably get you a lower interest rate. The property can be used as your primary residence, second home, or investment (2-4 units too). No tax returns or transcripts are necessary.

Your monthly income is determined by your total eligible liquid asset balances (savings, money market, CDs, Brokerage, IRA or 401k accounts) using various formulas. If you have $1,000,000 liquid, the lender will derive your monthly income based on an income formula.
We will look at the current rental income of the subject property and the appraisal report's market rent. The property's monthly rental income must be able to cover the new mortgage payment, property taxes, and insurance. No employment or personal income is necessary.
Eligible Properties: Single-family homes, condos, and townhomes and two to- four-family properties (higher down payment requirements). Homes with lot sizes of 50 acres or more, log cabins, or agriculturally zoned properties are not eligible.
