I currently don't work because i was married and my husband worked as a contractor overseas. I am now divorced and will be moving to Shreveport.

Asked by Newtotrulia, Shreveport, LA Wed Feb 29, 2012

I will get a job when I get settled in. I have an excellent credit score and a large down payment for a house. Will a bank finance me with no job?

Perhaps. It's hard to answer this without having more specific information in regards to price range, down payment, etc. You more than likely won't have the ability to get a standard Fannie Mae backed loan without some type of consistent income however you could probably get some type of commerical financing from a small local bank that would hold your loan in-house. The terms of a loan like that would generally be a 30-year amortized, fixed-rate mortgage with a balloon payment in 5 years. The interest rate tends to be a couple of points higher than the prevailing rate so as soon as you had consistent income then a refi to a fannie mae-backed loan would be in order.
