Self Employed Commercial Mortgage Loans
Select Commercial has excellent options available for self employed commercial mortgage loans. Many self-employed borrowers have trouble submitting their tax returns, and have difficulty qualifying for a loan at their bank. We offer many loan options based on Stated Income, and in many cases, do not require tax returns. These loans are sometimes called Self Employed Mortgage Loans, No Income Check loans, No Income Verification loans, Stated Income loans, Lite Doc loans or NIV loans. Many banks are very strict with their loan approvals and underwrite their loans strictly off the borrower's tax returns. We understand that tax returns don't always tell the whole story. We use a common-sense approach to underwriting commercial mortgage loans for self employed borrowers. Why might a self employed borrower consider this type of loan? Let’s consider a few examples:
- Small business owners who experience large fluctuations in income from year to year might have difficulty getting a loan approval from their bank. A no-income check loan might be a better option.
- Foreign borrowers who do not file US tax returns often have difficulty obtaining financing from their bank. A stated income loan might be the answer. We also finance out of state investors, as we have no residency requirements.
- Transitional properties that have experienced vacancy or high turnover rates might not report enough income on their tax returns to qualify for a conventional commercial mortgage. A lite doc loan might help in this case. These loans include recently rented or recently stabilized properties with limited track record.
- Self employed borrowers who do not qualify for bank financing and need a more relaxed approach to income qualification. This might include borrowers with limited seasoning or limited experience owning their properties.
- Borrowers with limited post-closing liquidity. Our net worth and liquidity requirements are lower than the local bank.
Whether you are purchasing a new commercial property or refinancing an existing property, we have the right solutions available for your stated income or no income verification loan. We will entertain loan requests from $1,000,000, with the following options:
- Standard Program: Best for credit worthy self-employed borrowers and investors looking for an alternative to restrictive bank requirements.
- Lite Doc Investor Program: Best for investors unable to disclose certain financial data or those whose commercial properties are more valuable than a tax return might indicate.
- Owner-Occupied Stated Income Program: Best when a self-employed business owner has difficulty proving his income, as required by his local bank.
- Bank Statement Program: Best for self employed business owners who prefer to document their income by providing their monthly bank statements instead of providing their tax returns.
