Equity Prime - Mike NelsonBank Statement Loans: Great Product for Successful Business Owners

I received a call last week from a wonderful realtor who does a great job for her clients.  Her client owns a very successful small business and he wants to purchase a house for his family.  This certainly seems like a reasonable idea.

Successful business owners use CPA’s to run their books, keep track of revenue, account for cost, and properly file taxes each year.  As with all good CPA’s, they follow the rules and file tax returns according to the laws and financial regulations.  For businesses owners this will include accounting for expense to reduce their income tax.

The problem is the Fannie & Freddie world of conforming mortgages does not deal well with the successful business owner who has plenty of assets and cash flow but not a lot of taxable income.  I can tell you, I have spoken to many wealthy people who want to buy a house, have the necessary assets, but can’t get a conforming loan.

What is the solution?

Non-Prime Loans Are Safer Than You Think

When non-prime (or non-QM) lending returned to the market again early last year, it wasn’t welcomed back with open arms. Many critics were concerned that these products were the same as the sub-prime loans that led to the housing crisis and were afraid that history would repeat itself. In fact, sub-prime and non-QM are quite different. New regulations have helped to ease non-QM loans back into the market.

Don’t Get Stuck In the QM Box

mike nelson equity primeI am licensed in Florida, Colorado, and California for a couple of reasons.  The first of which is family – I have a lot of family in California and my wife and I want to visit for extended periods of time.  Since I still need to work – we want to incorporate these extended work visits with re-connecting to family and friends.
