“Self-Employed Challenges”

“Self-Employed Challenges”

Hi Joe,
Thank you so much for your help with the house!! I will include this in my letter, but I just got my check for the month of June from the private practice. I took home $11,800.00. Why in the world would I stay at the hospital job for $4,100.00 per month, just to get a W2 at the end of the year? At that point, a lender would tell me I didn’t make enough to buy a house. I appreciate you helping me make sense of all of this.
I really appreciate my Realtor referring you!

It’s tricky when clients looking to obtain a mortgage give us their w2 income and move to 100% self-employed income, even when making a lot more money.
The bank that Andrea interacted with failed to ask if she previously had already claimed any self-employed income, which she had been for two and a half years. The guidelines normally want to see 2 years of self-employed income.
