Options for the Self-Employed
For today’s workforce, everything is changing!
Today’s workforce has dramatically shifted to include more self-employed and freelance individuals. United Northern Mortgage Bankers, Ltd. is in step with today’s workplace with loan programs specifically designed to embrace the special circumstances of self-employed individuals.
Recently we introduced reductions in the amount of documentation self-employed borrowers are required to produce for Conventional loans. These programs also have less cumbersome consideration of income from second jobs.
Feel free to schedule a consultation with one of our licensed mortgage loan originators to hear more about our programs for self-employed individuals
