What is the Self-Employed Mortgage?
The Self-Employed Mortgage, also known as a freelancer or entrepreneur mortgage, is a home loan designed for self-employed individuals or individuals who own their own businesses. As a self-employed individual, we understand your unique financial situation. You may work out of your home, pay rent for a storefront, or have other sources of income. This program offers various mortgage options that take all of that into account.
Traditional mortgage applications often require proof of stable income and employment history. This can be challenging for those with irregular income or non-traditional employment. In a self-employed mortgage, lenders consider the applicant’s business income and financial stability.
We Can Help You!
At Skip The Bank, we take into consideration both your gross business income, your personal finances, and your business expenses. All of this is important because mortgage lenders determine your qualifications based on your ability to pay. This is known as debt-to-income ratios or debt ratios. The bottom line is that the more income you have, the higher the mortgage loan amount you can get.
Your credit card history and personal tax returns may present challenges when qualifying for a mortgage. Even those who are employees or have simple returns may need help to secure a loan. You may even own multiple properties or other assets. Our mortgage brokers consider every aspect of your situation to ensure you feel comfortable with your decision.
We specialize in clients who have complex financial structures. We have the knowledge and experience that comes from helping thousands of self-employed clients in similar situations. Let our experts work with you to create a financial plan that you feel confident will help you achieve your goals. It’s important for self-employed individuals seeking a mortgage to work with a lender experienced in handling applications from those with non-traditional employment situations.

Real Mortgage Success Stories
Jill is a registered therapist and her business has grown in the last three years. She started as a sole proprietor and recently her accountant recommended that she open a corporation to allow her to limit her personal tax exposure. When she went to her bank to see if she could get pre-approved for a mortgage, her bank wanted at least two years of corporate tax returns.
Despite her excellent savings and credit they rejected her because of how her taxes had been completed. She was beyond frustrated! That’s when she came to The Mortgage Centre’s Skip the Bank. We were able to work with a lender and access the equity in her home to do some upgrades.
Rashid works for a tech company in the US and invoices the company for tax purposes. He would normally invoice $6000 per month and collect this amount for at least 18 months. He wanted to purchase another property but his bank has turned him down for the next mortgage. The main reason is that on Rashid’s personal tax returns, the accountant helps him with tax planning and shows little net income.
Although Rashid has a great credit history, savings and his partner currently works, his frustration on building a real estate investment portfolio looked like it wasn’t going to be a reality. That’s when a friend recommended that he speak to The Mortgage Centre’s Skip the Bank. Rashid now owns three rental properties! The tenants that he has pay rent on time, and the student tenants know that he’s a good landlord.
