I can't imagine any lender having a problem with you being self employed unless you have not been filing taxes or just started up a business and don't have any history in this field. All the lenders I work with would be able to assist you. I would recommend getting prequalified before looking so that you know what you can purchase. This avoids disappointment in case you start looking at properties that are a bit to high for you.

I would be more than happy to help you through this process, please don't hesitate to call.

I recommend giving John Rapasky at Counsel Mortgage Group a call. He is very knowledgable not only in lending, but has a law and accounting degree as well.

Rules governing lending to self employed borrowers have tighten and become more convoluted. Even more so depending on each borrower's particular situation. Now more than ever you need someone both knowledgeable and experienced to assist you. That said, instead of a major bank or credit union, I would recommend engaging a local loan officer that works for a well established mortgage broker or corespondent lender. Good luck.

I have 2 really good people and they are both with the top mortgage bankr in the state and they can close quickly. If I have a tough client to get financed, I send them to one of these two depending on their overall situation. Give me a call and I will let you know which one fits your situation best.

I have a few contacts for you, but the best one will depend on some other personal circumstance. Please send me your email and I will forward you some contacts and additional information.

Most loan officers will be able to help you, the most important factor these days is being able to support your income with documentation. It might be harder but we do it all the time.

Good luck!
