What Our Clients Have to Say:

"I am a successful freelancer who after a few years of major growth decided I was ready to take the next step and buy my dream home. The problem was I was told by multiple lenders I could not get a mortgage because of my tax returns which made me feel stressed and overwhelmed. I thought all hope was lost until I scheduled a consultation with Andrew Tamajon. He completely understood my situation and guided me through options I didn't know I had. Ultimately, Andrew and his team helped me close on my dream home. I would absolutely recommend Andrew Tamajon and his team to anyone, especially if you are self-employed!"

"I was concerned that I would not find any reasonable options catering to my self-employed situation. I was able to get approved and close on my home because Doug Adler thoroughly guided me through all options and found one that best suited my needs.

Self-Employed Borrower

"Before working with Andrew Tamajon I applied for a mortgage with another lender but later got denied. Getting denied for a mortgage was unexpected and defeating. Looking back, I should have realized that most loan officers out there just don't understand self-employed income. Andrew Tamajon knew right away what I was going through and his experience working with other business owners gave me the confidence I needed to move forward. I am happy to say I am now a proud self-employed home owner and I owe it to Andrew Tamajon. I'd recommend him to anyone who is self-employed!"

What is an asset based loan?

Also known as an asset-qualifying or asset depletion loan, an asset based loan is a type of mortgage that allows you to qualify using liquid assets instead of income (tax returns).

To calculate income for an asset depletion loan, the lender will take the total amount of liquid assets and divide it by a certain number of months.

The number of months used can vary by lender, starting as high as 360 months for conventional loans. LoanBud takes the borrower’s total liquid assets and divides them by 60.

How do I know if an asset based mortgage is right for me?

Most asset-based mortgage customers have at least 110% of the amount they’re looking to borrow in assets. For example, if you want to purchase a $500,000 property, you will need to have at least $550,000 in liquid assets, investments, or retirement accounts to qualify for an asset depletion mortgage without proof of income.

Asset based loans are ideal for people who:

  • Have a significant amount of assets
  • Do not show enough net income on the tax returns to qualify for a conventional mortgage
  • Are retired or are close to retirement
What are the requirements for an asset-based mortgage?

An asset-based mortgage could be a great fit if the value of your assets is significantly larger than your monthly income. However, you need to make sure that your assets can be used to qualify for a mortgage.

Qualifying assets include:

  • Checking and/or savings accounts
  • Investment accounts (stocks, bonds, and mutual funds)
  • Retirement accounts (IRA or 401k)
  • Certificates of deposits (CDs)
  • Money market accounts

Here are examples of assets that cannot be used:

  • Equity in real estate owned
  • Automobiles, boats, or other non-liquid assets
  • Gifts or loans

You will also need to meet a certain set of requirements in order to be considered for an asset-based mortgage.

Typically, your lender will require:

  • A down payment of 25-30% of your home’s purchase price, although LoanBud can offer asset qualifying mortgages for as low as 15% down
  • A credit score of 620 or higher, but above 680 is ideal
  • Liquid assets of at least 110% of the requested loan amount
Can you refinance based on assets?

Yes, asset based loans can be used for both refinances and purchases. At LoanBud, asset based refinances are available as both a rate & term refinance or as a cash out refinance, up to 85% loan to value.
