We decided to rent to make sure we liked the area before buying. (We have owned 2 homes 1 in chicago and 1 in denver). upon our arrival in geneva my husband was an independent sales rep for the company that he now works for as an actual employee. this transition happened just as we moved here 9/2013. he has a base salary, a car allowance and commission. He is basically doing the same thing he was doing when he was an independent rep except now he gets insurance and the car allowance. When we were "pre-approved" we were also told that we need to look at cheaper houses, due to the nature of the pay structure. so we found one significantly cheaper than what they said was our cap. (cap was 280,000, got one for 258,000). we are currently on our 3rd extension, so far at least 2 underwriters have denied us, maybe even 3. We are supposed to close in a couple of days and well, we are freaking out. our rental that we are in is under contract, and there is nothing else for rent in geneva that is even close to our needs. what are my options? (besides find a rental in new town)<br \><br \>4 replies Mon, 28 Jul 2014 18:55:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-husband-and-I-got-pre-approved-and-now-they-may-not-give-us-the-loan-what-can-we-do/551823/ 2014-07-28T18:55:00Z how do my husband and i get a mortgage with a single income that is commission based? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-do-my-husband-and-i-get-a-mortgage-with-a-single-income-that-is-commission-based/522646/ we are a growing family and sold our house in denver, to move back to the midwest and buy a house big enough for a family of 5. if i were to go back to work, it would probably just cover daycare costs, but would it help us get a mortgage?&nbsp; husband just switched jobs and his last employer was in canada, there is no 1099.<br \><br \>6 replies Sat, 28 Dec 2013 20:15:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-do-my-husband-and-i-get-a-mortgage-with-a-single-income-that-is-commission-based/522646/ 2013-12-28T20:15:00Z Like to remodel the kitchen and add a sunroom.
