While the majority of borrowers use conventional financing for their home loans, sometimes non-conventional financing is a better option... and sometimes non-conventional financing is the only option. In this video, Christian Alvarez, a Mortgage Advisor with Samuel Scott Financial Group, explains the different types of specialty loans that are available for buyers with "out of the box" situations.
In addition to government backed loans (conventional financing options), Samuel Scott Financial Group also offers clients a wide variety of home loan options from Portfolio Investors. Because these loans are coming from private investors, they do not have to adhere to government parameters and can be good solutions for borrowers with specific needs.
For example, let's say you have been self-employed for years and have only limited forms of income documentation. The challenge here is that conventional financing requires a lot of paperwork and you may not be able to qualify without those income records. Through private investors, however, Samuel Scott is able to help clients obtain products like Alternative Document or Stated Income Loans. For many small business owners this is a great option that allows them to be both an entrepreneur and a home owner.
San Diego is known for our rich diversity; as a vacation city we attract a lot of tourists and many would like to make Southern California their home. Here the challenge is that Foreign Nationals may not qualify for a convention, government backed loan. The good news is that Samuel Scott has investors who will work with borrowers from out of the country. We can pull international credit reports and tax returns that allow us to prove the strength of a borrower and get them into their US dream home.
There are many situations that can make a borrower feel like they are not qualified for a home loan, but with specialty products financing could very well be within reach. It's important not to feel limited by conventional loan options. Instead, sit down with a professional Mortgage Advisor and explain what makes your finances unique. Our team is trained to analyze your entire situation and present solutions that fit your overall goals.
