It depends on the type of mortgage you are getting and the bank. There are some loans and some banks where you can get a loan with a temp job if everything else is good

If you can prove that your temporary position is stable, it is possible that a lender would be willing to take the extra risk, assuming you meet all of their other income, work history, credit, and down payment requirements. I suggest to all of my customers & clients to start with their local bank first. If you desire a second opinion, I'd be happy to recommend another loan officer.

Banks are definitely lending at this point and the rates have never looked better- but gone are the days of anybody taking someone's word for it or the infamous "no doc" loans- so the answer is yes you'll have to be able to prove your employment, typically via paystubs and W2s, but the underwriter may go further still and call to check- the length of time you mentioned should be helpful in consideration of you getting a loan for sure-- and NEVER despair: there are always loans out there to be had or ways to be found to get to them- but using a responsive loan officer who gets back to you and gives you the options in plain speak makes that a ton easier- take care and good luck!
