Non-QM Mortgage Products

To meet the wants of diverse borrowers, we offer a broad range of Non-QM loan products. The following are the Non-QM Mortgage products we provide:

Bank Statement Loans for Self-Employed Borrowers

This loan is usually the right solution for self-employed debtors, business owners, entrepreneurs, consultants, and realtors.

Loan amounts are available up to $30 Million.

Jumbo Loans with 5% Down

While traditional jumbo loans usually need 20 percent down, we provide near-miss jumbo loans with as little as 5 down, up to a 55 percent debt-to-income ratio, and credit scores nearing 660. Jumbo loans that have 5 percent down are mostly the perfect solution for those buying for first-time who may still have substantial student loans and other kinds of “perfect credit debt”.

No Income Investment Loans​​ (DSCR Loans)

Private loans usually have high rates and take some time to get accepted, which is not favorable for many real estate investors.

Asset-based loans help one to leverage assets they already own, including saving and checking accounts, money market accounts, or investing accounts, to secure a loan. This kind of Non-QM mortgage is favorable for people with available substantial liquid assets.

Hard Money Loans

Hard Money Loans are from lenders who are willing to lend their own money to mortgage your needs. They make their own rules and requirements for their types of loans.

To pass, you will be required to produce a VISA waiver or VISA as well as three active and open trade lines with a history of two years. Foreign Nationals are able to make home purchases up to $30 Million.


Interest-Only Home Loans

We have an option to provide a 40-year fixed loans. You will only pay the interest during the first ten years of the loan. This gives significant cashflow savings over the first 10 year period of the loan. Nevertheless, it is essential to remember that you will not be paying the principal balance during the interest only period of the loan.

Recent credit events can make it hard to get a loan since a lot of lenders view them as a warning sign. However, we provide loan programs for debtors with recent credit occurrences, including bankruptcy, short sale, and foreclosure.

As a debtor, you need to find the best suitable terms, not forgetting the lowest possible interest percent. It may look obvious to choose the loan option that gives you the lowest rate, but that isn’t always the best choice as time goes by. You need to ask about the involved fees with the loan and ensure that the mortgage product is the perfect fit for your situation.

Teaching yourself about your loan options is the first step to finding a Non-QM loan that meets your needs.

Non-QM Mortgage Risks

The main risk of a Non-QM mortgage is not able to repay the loan when your financial situation suddenly changes. This may be of concern if there is another economic downfall. However, evasion on any loan is usually a risk.

By maintaining moderate lending levels while keeping flexibility, Non-QM loans give a bridge for borrowers who would otherwise have no choice or be saddled with unreasonably high-interest rates that drastically increase the expense of the loan. While Non-QM mortgages don’t have these same regulations, it doesn’t mean that debtors are placing themselves in a risky position. There are drafts and balances in place to keep safe both the lender and the buyer.
