I thought I was reading a post from 2005. We have no stated income loans currently in FL, so was surprised to see it could be still happening in CA. Is this a sign of "thawing" in financing?

One lender recently emailed me advertising a loan with income review, based on bank statements' income, but the rate was pretty high. It was the 1st instance since 05'.

Hope this helps,

Hi Irina,
No, traditional lending guidelines are still the same here in CA. Stated income loans are made mainly with significant down payments through hard money or private money lenders. They are usually available only to investors for business or investment purposes, as loans for owner occupied properties need to show an ability to repay.

You have a great credit score and solid equity, but the high rate is due to the stated income. Only hard money lenders are doing stated income, and their rates usually start around 7.99%.

If you want to try for a traditional mortgage with the best rates possible, I could qualify you for a payment on $60,000 with roughly $1150 in monthly income over the past two years, assuming you have no other debts and meet all other guidelines. This number would be adjusted accordingly depending on other monthly debt expenses, and could even be lower depending on the automated underwriting decision.

I could have an approval for you within 3-4 days if you'd like to apply.

You mean the guy that copies and pastes "I can certainly help you out there" to every single post could not help you out?

Sorry for the sarcasm, I'm sure it's frustrating to be sent on a wild goose chase. I just don't know why people post they can do something when they cannot.

A few questions for you.
What rate are you at? VOE programs will carry a higher rate anyway so even if you did find one it might prove futile.
Why do you need a stated income product? The loan amount seems relatively small; what is your DTI with whatever income you can verify?
And finally, what income can you verify and have you had an experienced loan officer look at it for you?
