Temporarily unemployed but have up to 50% to put down. Can we get a mortgage?I was told recently that we might be able to get financed by putting 30% down even if unemployed. We can put down up to 50%. Can we get financed somehow? The person mentioned a 2-3 year note. I don't really know what that means. Also, would a loan like this have a higher rate?My husband will be working soon, but I have a small home-based business that I can't do out of our rental. We're in a hurry to buy something and get things going.Any help is appreciated.
