As we continue down the loan program row, I wanted to talk about Non-QM Mortgages today. Non-QM Loans are not your Standard Fannie / Freddie/ FHA / VA conventional loans, and they require a larger down payment and are generally for people who can’t qualify for your standard mortgages. The rates are a bit higher, and you can get longer or even interest-only terms on some programs. Below are some of the Non-QM Loans:

  • Bank statement loans: We have banks that will take as little as three months, but you will get the best rate using 24 months of bank statements. Minimum 15% down now, but we have seen as little as 10% down in the recent past. 3 Months statements require 20% down! 660 Min Credit score.
  • DSCR:  Debt Service Coverage Ratio Loans - This allows a buyer to qualify based on the income of an investment property. If the property’s income is not enough, some banks will just charge a higher rate. Minimum 20% down, 680 minimum credit score.
  • Asset Qualification: Allows a buyer to qualify based on the assets they have in the bank - 15% down minimum - 660 Minimum credit score.
  • No Income Qualifier:  No Stated income – No income, no job, nothing except assets needed. 12 Months reserves and 20% down with a 700 credit score. 640 credit score minimum, but you need 35% down and 24 months of reserves.

So that’s the basics, and lower credit scores require more money. These loan programs are great when someone needs help to qualify for a regular loan.

Interest rates were worse yesterday and better today. Yup, life’s ups, and downs are so much fun.
