Let’s talk a little bit about what type of income is NOT acceptable to use in your mortgage transaction.
Check it out in today’s video:

1. Rent money – You can not use rent from a friend or family member that is going to live with you to help qualify for a mortgage. Not even with a lease.
2. Obviously, anything cash. If you have a cash job you can not use any of that money for qualifying purposes or as money for downpayment.
3. Second job income – This is a big one for some of you. You can NOT use second job income to qualify UNLESS you have a two year history of having a second job. This is to prevent people from obtaining a second job just to qualify.
4. Unreimbursed expenses – These deductions are deducted from your income. Make sure you let your loan officer know if you have unreimbursed expenses related to your job. It makes a big difference.
