Non-QM Loan

Your Road To Homeownership Starts Now

What Is a Non-QM Loan?

Like its name might suggest, a non-QM loan (or non-qualified mortgage loan) is made for borrowers who don’t meet traditional mortgage requirements set forth by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, or CFPB. Even if your financial history isn’t perfect, a non-QM loan may be able to help you achieve your future goals with a few key terms.

There are many reasons why you might not meet the requirements for a standard loan. Sometimes, it could be due to a history of poor credit, bankruptcy, or foreclosure. Being self-employed is another potential reason some borrowers miss out on qualified mortgages. 

Whatever your unique situation may be, a non-QM loan may open up the doors to homeownership for you! 

Is a Non-QM Loan Right For Me?

Non-QM loans provide a welcome alternative to traditional mortgages for borrowers who would otherwise miss out! However, they’re not necessarily the solution in every case.

The Benefits

  • Eligibility for nontraditional borrowers
  • Loan options for borrowers with imperfect financial history 
  • May qualify even if turned down for Conventional or FHA Loan

The Drawbacks

  • Attractive repayment options that may end up costing more in the long run
  • Tend to have higher down payments than other more traditional loan products
