Advantages of a Non QM Loan
Small businesses and 1099/independent contractors, have exploded in recent years. Documenting consistent income sources can be a challenge. Non QM loans work well for self-employed and 1099/independent contractors because lenders can offer this mortgage product which can have less restrictions.
Borrowers who do not or cannot show a lot of income may opt for Non QM. Self-employed and 1099/independent contractor borrowers often have this issue. For example, if you work on a cash basis, you can use your bank accounts to offset your lack of income (how it’s calculated varies). Most of the time, you don’t need to provide tax returns or pay stubs, and retirement accounts (with restrictions) can even be used.
The Non QM mortgage loan is not bad, it is a way for alternative lenders to compete for funding loans for borrowers not eligible for conventional or government-backed loans.

A Non QM mortgage loan is a type of home loan that requires lower documentation and credit score than a conventional mortgage.
For example, in lieu of income or asset documentation, a Non QM loan may require the borrower to show evidence that he or she has an adequate credit score, has steady employment for at least two years, and an acceptable debt-to-income ratio.
Non QM loans are a form of mortgages that are considered to be an alternative to a traditional mortgage. The US mortgage market has been dominated by either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, but this market has opened up to other lenders in the past few years.
