Beth - your broker is absolutely correct. Stated income programs went away (for the most part) along with the lenders that offered them in the past.
Did your broker fully review your tax returns to confirm your eligible income?
And where are you at with your 2012 tax preparation?
This is the time of year when loan officers can actually counsel their clients towards how much adjusted income to report so they have qualifying income for their home purchase...
As the responder from Amerisave mentioned, there are stated income loans out there, and they do have much higher fees/rates involved....so it really boils down to assessing how badly you want to buy a home, and what compromises you'll consider making!
Let me know if I can be of further assistance and good luck!
