Many people enjoy the freedom that comes from being self employed. But when it comes to getting a home loan, working for yourself can make it a little more difficult.
Whether it’s for a new purchase or a refinance, lender policies for the self employed are considerably more complex.
Variations in lender policies
Imagine that during one financial year, you earn $40,000. The next year, things pick up and you earn $80,000. Seeing as your financial situation has improved so much, you decide to buy a house.
Unfortunately, not all lenders will see things the same way. One bank may look at your income over the two years and decide that your yearly income is $48,ooo. Another bank will consider your income to be only $40,000. Yet another lender will calculate your income at $80,000 per year.
As you can imagine, these differences in income calculation will have a huge impact on your borrowing capacity. The lender who decides you only earn $40,000 per year certainly won’t lend you as much as the lender who sees your yearly income as $80,000.
Finding the right lender
Faced with these confusing discrepancies, some people make the mistake of making multiple applications, to see which bank will look most favourably on their income.
This is never a good way to find the right lender.
Every application you make marks your credit file. Multiple credit file marks in quick succession will greatly reduce your chances of being approved for finance.
