Self Employed Home Buyers

Self Employed individuals have historically had a hard time securing a mortgage. The reason is that It’s harder for financial institutions to verify the income for the self-employed. It really doesn’t need to be this hard.

The key to getting a great mortgage as a self-employed home buyer is working with the right mortgage lender. Some financial institutions are wary of working with self-employed individuals and are more likely to work with those who can verify income with a large, established employer.
