Despite Mortgage Interest Rates, Gig Workers Could Find It Easier to Qualify for Home Loans

LEWISVILLE, Texas, Oct. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Home Finance, a leading mortgage loan originator serving consumers in Texas and Georgia, wants gig workers to know that qualifying for a mortgage is easier, in spite of rising interest rates because Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?the nation's two largest home loan funders?have begun loosening their well-known tight underwriting standards, enacted in response to COVID-19.

"Gig workers include Uber and Lyft Drivers, delivery service drivers, independent contractors, temp workers, and anyone else who enters into an agreement to provide services on-demand," says Brad Cahoone, President of Global Home Finance. "They're often paid in cash, don't use banks, or forgo the services of an accountant to prepare important documents."

As COVID began ravaging the economy, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae required lenders to obtain a year-to-date profit-and-loss statement reporting revenue, expenses, and net income from self-employed borrowers. This and other onerous requirements prevented many gig workers from becoming homeowners.

Recently, both funders started pulling back on those stipulations. Now, lenders are offering gig workers specialty loans. "We have multiple custom mortgage solutions including the NINJA home loan, which is specially designed for business owners and gig workers," Brad continues.

"If you're self-employed and dreamed of home ownership, now is the perfect time to make your dream a reality. Connect with us to explore the mortgage options available for special situations like this," says Brad.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
