Salaried Employment, Self Employment, Rental Income, Retirement income, Stocks and dividends --
there is quite a long list. I recommend speaking with a lender - its free and there is no obligation.

Your mortgage broker need all type of income that you had for the past two years, even if is with two or more employers or if is a self employed. They will need the last two income tax to see what kind of income you declare in those.

Best of Luck,

Sam has the bases covered. An additional source is alimony as well. Talk to a lender and get yourself prequalified.

You probably want to avoid talking about any illegal and undeclared income. The rest may be able to be used to buy the dream home.

You would have to speak with your lender to see if you qualify for the guidelines.
