You many want to contact Cheryl Dambacher, realtor in Springfield area. She not only advised us which banks to go to for our financing, but because we had a time limit, she secured a bank financial officer who worked from home while sick to determine that we would be eligible. To our surprise, she was able to find us some government money for our conventional loan. She is very adept with finding money for veterans, up to $18,000.

Hi James,

It depends.
Is this going to be an non-owner occupied property?

When applying for a mortgage, you will be asked to provide a copy of your most recent tax returns. Income and expenses related to real estate rentals are usually reported on Form 1040, Schedule E. The loan underwriters will consider any rental income in the loan approval process. Hope this helps!
