Self Employment and the Home Loan?My husband quit his job in accounting a few months ago to open up his own firm. Unfortunate timing, as we are also adding to our family and need to move into a larger place. We rent now. We'd like to buy and aren't sure how to get a loan, as he writes his own pay checks. His company, not surprisingly, will show a loss for the first year. We have $25,000 up front and are looking to spend $200,000. Is it still possible to secure a loan on our own, or will we need a guarantor?Thanks!
