Zillow Advice: Home Buying - I'm self employed and about to move to the US with my wife. Can I get a mortgage http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-self-employed-and-about-to-move-to-the-US-with-my-wife-Can-I-get-a-mortgage/304089/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Steve,I understand your situation. ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-self-employed-and-about-to-move-to-the-US-with-my-wife-Can-I-get-a-mortgage/304089/ Steve,<br/><br/>I understand your situation. I have helped many foreigners get <a href="http://www.zillow.com/mortgage/">loans</a>. Since you have a green card, you are then a resident alien who qualifies just the same as a citizen in your case because you are putting more than 20% downpayment, therefore an MI company will not be involved. The only hurdle that we will have to overcome is proving your income. This could be a little harder.&nbsp;Lastly&nbsp;I might be able to get you a <a href="http://www.zillow.com/mortgage/">loan</a> through a local bank, who looks at things a little more different than a national lender.<br/><br/>I forgot that we are not supposed to include our personal information on these boards, therefore I urge you to do one of two things, Either click on my company name for my info or search my company name on your favorite search engine and you should be able to find me.<br/><br/><br/><br/>&nbsp; Wed, 09 Dec 2009 21:30:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-self-employed-and-about-to-move-to-the-US-with-my-wife-Can-I-get-a-mortgage/304089/ 2009-12-09T21:30:00Z To clarify I'm not a US Citizen ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-self-employed-and-about-to-move-to-the-US-with-my-wife-Can-I-get-a-mortgage/304089/ To clarify I'm not a US Citizen but a greencard holder. My SS is apparently in the post but I haven't seen sight of it yet. I don't unfortunately have two years of self employed tax records. If I did I doubt they would count anyway as I'm only arriving in the country this Friday - i.e. the records I have are from the UK not US. Do I have any options? <br/><br/>It just seems crazy that I'm going to be pulling in US$25,000 a month from Wall Street clients but can't get a $2,000 a month mortgage...
