Home Loans for Uniquely Qualified Clients
A non-qualified mortgage (non-QM) is a home loan designed to help homebuyers who don't have all the necessary documentation to qualify for a traditional mortgage or cannot meet the strict criteria of a qualifying mortgage.
Non-QM Loans Are Ideal for:
Clients who are self-employed
Clients with high net worth
Clients investing in multiple rental units
Clients who are foreign nationals
Accessible Home Loans
Down payments as low as 20%

A Fixed-Rate Mortgage has an interest rate that remains the same for the life of the loan. An Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM) is a home loan with an interest rate that can change periodically.

Non-QM loans are ideal for uniquely qualified clients, including:
Clients who are self-employed. Instead of tax returns, non-QM loans require 12–14 months of bank statements to verify income.
Clients with high net worth. An Asset Depletion loan solution divides your total cash balance by a lender-chosen time period, so the asset can be counted as income. For example, a $200,000 savings balance may be converted into $833.33 of extra monthly qualifying income with a typical 20-year asset depletion loan term.
Clients investing in multiple rental units. Non-QM loans may be applicable for clients who are building a portfolio of investment properties but already own 10 other mortgaged properties (the limit for most conventional lenders). If the rental income on the new property exceeds that property’s monthly loan payment, you won’t need to verify any other income to qualify.
Clients who are foreign nationals. A foreign national is defined as a citizen of another country who lives in the U.S. for brief periods of time. Non-QM loans for foreign nationals may not require proof of U.S. income, credit or a Social Security Number.
