“But How Much was Net Profit?”

“But How Much was Net Profit?”

 

 

Hey Joe, I can’t tell you that I am very happy with what you told me. How does it make any sense that my business brought in $223,000 last year and you can’t qualify me for a $200,000 mortgage?

 

This problem has been around for a long time when it comes to the self-employed. Sure, I can understand how someone would think bringing over $200,000 in revenues would allow someone to obtain a $200,000 mortgage, unfortunately that is not the case.

 

This individual showed a net profit of $3300 and in 2015 showed a loss of $1900. I can understand someone wanting to pay the least amount of income taxes, but it makes it almost impossible to get a $200,000 mortgage.

 

I did have a conference call with him and the accountant and hopefully they will have a better plan going forward.
