Stated Income Mortgage Loans
A stated income mortgage loan is a specialized mortgage loan where the mortgage lender verifies employement and assets, but not income. Instead, an income is simply stated on the formal 1003 application (the stated income on the application has to be realistic for the employment type). Stated income mortgage loans are ideal for those who's employement and assets are verifiable, but whose income is not verifiable for the type of mortgage loan they're interested in.
Stated income mortgage loans are available as both fixed rate mortgage loans and adjustable rate mortgage loans. Because the mortgage lender qualifies the borrower only off employement and assets with a stated income mortgage loan, the qualifying guidelines are more strict and the interest rate is also somewhat higher than it would be for a regular full doc mortgage loan. In addition, stated income mortgage loans typically require at least 5 percent down from the borrower's own funds.
