In Houston, Texas its easy for the self employed to get a mortgage. Until today most self employed borrowers could not get a mortgage because they had too many write offs on their tax return. This sound financial management strategy made it very difficult for self employed borrowers to buy a home. There are a couple secrets that have been closely held until today! Most loan officers and Realtors in Houston don’t even know the secret that I am going to tell you!
Use a short term immediate annuity to create a verifiable income. The term must over three years (most life insurance companies require a five year term.) The payment must be enough (when combined with your other income) to decrease your debt to income level to an acceptable level.
If you have a few months to qualify, you can set up a trust that makes monthly payments to you for a period in excess of 3 years after your first mortgage payment. The trustee must write a letter guaranteeing those payments. You must have received some of the trust payments prior to submitting your loan to underwriting.
