The Texas Mortgage Pros

Getting A Texas Mortgage When You Have A Seasonal Income

If you are a professional who works part of the year or is seasonally employed, you might have a tough time qualifying for a mortgage. The job can be available depending on the season, such as snow removal, landscaping, or a side hassle. It is a type of employment known as sporadic.

While the nature of your profession might not disqualify you from getting a mortgage, it could make the process somewhat tricky.

The Required Documentation

You must prove to the mortgage lender you have a reliable income even though you have seasonal employment. For VA and FHA loans, you should provide the necessary paperwork that shows you worked for the same employer for at least two years or have been in the same profession for the same period. Moreover, your employer will provide the documents that prove you still be hired in the upcoming season.

However, if you have worked for less than two years, your incomes might not qualify you for the mortgage. Similarly, you might not be eligible even if you have been working for two years, and your employer cannot prove that you will be hired in the season that follows.

What Next If You Cannot Prove This?

If you cannot give evidence that shows you have a reliable income for a period not less than two years, you will not qualify for the mortgage. However, you can re-apply once these changes, and you have the necessary documentation to back it.
