Abilene Non-Qualified Mortgage

It’s typical to encounter issues when applying for a mortgage with a traditional lender; these issues only stall the application process and ultimately result in your application being rejected. If you’re self-employed, your application might be rejected immediately, even if you have a high credit score and a long credit history. 

Capital Home Mortgage believes that not all borrowers who fail to meet lender requirements are high-risk. This is where our non-qualified mortgage options come in.

Qualified vs. Non-Qualified Mortgage

One of the main distinctions between qualified and non-qualified mortgages is the degree to which they adhere to consumer protections established by the Dodd-Frank Act and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). These measures regulate interest rates and fees on home loans and require lenders to verify a borrower’s ability to repay the loan to avoid overborrowing.

A qualified mortgage (QM) conforms to the following criteria:

  • Review and verification of borrower’s income and debts
  • Negative amortization, interest-only loans, or balloon payments are not allowed.
  • Limited up-front fees, points, and annual percentage rate (APR).
  • A maximum loan term of 30 years.

Non-qualified mortgages (Non-QM) circumvent one or more of the guidelines mentioned earlier by employing alternative income verification methods to assist borrowers in obtaining mortgage approval. Non-QM comes in handy to those who have found their dream home but cannot meet qualified mortgage standards. They are ideal for: 

  • Self-employed borrowers;
  • High net-worth borrowers;
  • Rental-property investors;
  • Individuals with bad credit;
  • Foreign nationals;
  • Borrowers seeking an interest-only payment option.

Some common features of a non-qualified mortgage include the following:

  • Up to 40-year term 

Payments are spread over 40 years to lower monthly premiums, which could mean higher interest rates and overall mortgage costs.

  • Fewer documentation requirements

Use bank statements or even stated income instead of tax returns and pay stubs to prove your income, which requires less supporting documentation.

  • Higher maximum allowable DTI

You may still qualify for a non-QM loan even if your monthly debt payments amount to more than 43% of your gross income.

  • Jumbo loans

Originates mortgages that exceed the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac limits of $647,200 for a single-family home.

  • Recent credit event loans

People who have recently experienced financial hardships, such as bankruptcy or foreclosure, have a shot at qualifying for non–QM mortgages.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Non-Qualified Mortgages

A non-QM mortgage has both benefits and drawbacks, just like any other type of loan. Weighing the following pros and cons of a Non-QM carefully will help you make a wise choice. 


  • Less stringent credit requirements 

One of the most significant advantages of non-QM loans is that they are available to people with low credit scores, allowing them to realize their goal of becoming homeowners.

  • Requires less documentation

They usually won’t require proof of income, tax returns, or W-2s. Non-QM lenders accept alternative proof of income such as bank statements, P&L statements, or proof of liquid assets.

  • More flexible loan terms

Loan terms greater than 30 years, interest-only payments, and negative amortization are possible with non-QM loans but not with QM loans.


  • Higher interest rates

Non-QM loans typically have higher interest rates and fees than QM loans because they pose a higher lending risk. 

  • Harder to find

Non-QM loans may have limited availability because not all mortgage lenders provide this option. You can search for non-QM lenders online and conduct research before making a decision.

  • Greater Risk of Default

Some QM loans, like interest-only loans, increase a borrower’s default risk.  

  • Higher Down Payments

Non-QM loans may have limited availability because not all mortgage lenders provide this option. You can search for non-QM lenders online and conduct research before making a decision.
