Most home buyers will obtain a mortgage from an A-lender, usually a major bank or credit union. However, many self-employed home buyers experience difficulty passing their federally regulated stress tests. Your affordability may be significantly reduced if you apply for a mortgage at an A-lender institution.
Due to these difficulties, B-lenders have become an increasingly popular option among self-employed home buyers. While B-lender interest rates are higher than those of A-lenders, you’re likely to be approved for a much larger mortgage than at a traditional bank or credit union.One key point here is how they account for your income compared to how the banks account for it. To learn more about B-lenders and determine what option is right for you, we suggest booking a free consultation with our professional mortgage broker.
