Could employment from a foreign company affect my mortgage approval?

Asked by Rocketdude, San Jose, CA Tue Jun 19, 2012

I'm in contract on a property (short sale, long process) and I'm pre-approved for a mortgage. Now, I'm preparing to take a new job. The company is overseas, and I will be one of only two people in the US. The job is full-time.

My income, industry, type of position etc. are pretty much identical.

If you're in contract already then this should not be an issue. However, make sure that you fully disclose any information to your agent as they are there to advise you.

There is some good input below.

Best of luck!

You should have a loan agent already to address this issue. As long as your new job is in the same line of work and it's not a temp position, you should not have a problem getting an approval.
Good luck

As you are in contract, you have an Agent and a Mortgage person. Please talk to them and get the Real Facts concerning your specific position, Remeber, they are there for you!

Good luck,

Are you relying on overtime, commissions or bonuses to qualify for this loan? If so, be careful; the Underwriter could require two years on the job with the new company before they will include overtime, commissions &/or bonus income. Again, if this is the case, your loan originator should be able to argue that your income structure is normal & customary for your position in the industry.

If you are not relying on overtime, commissions &/or bonus income, you should be fine.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any further questions, I'd be glad to help.

All the best,

Based on your limited info here, you should be fine. The person you really need to hear this from is your present lender's loan officer. It is, after all, their call!

Best wishes on a smooth closing...Jim
