Bank Of America pre approval. We have a broker but they are requesting an actually from Bank of America not via the broker. The broker qualified my parents by including income from the investment property. Is this a routine practice or will Bank of America only look at their actual income (wages). I fear my parents won't qualify based on their wages alone. (FYI My parents already own a FHA property wtih about 15 years left on their loan)

Hi Stephanie,
If Bank of America is requiring a B of A pre-approval you need to talk directly with them first. Talk with a local B of A mortgage person, and ask them these questions. You may be able to find a representative at a nearby B of A bank branch. Usually this person will be more than happy to answer these questions with no obligation. After all, they are hoping to get your parents business.
Good luck to you!

The bank will typically consider income earned as well as passive income. It helps to be able to show a history and stability of the income which is easy with rental property when it has been owned for 2 years or more. Good luck Stephanie!
