Zillow Advice: Loan Modifications - What do you do when you've just started a new job after long layoff and need to show being employed? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-do-you-do-when-you%27ve-just-started-a-new-job-after-long-layoff-and-need-to-show-being-employed/351864/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate I may be to late answering ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-do-you-do-when-you%27ve-just-started-a-new-job-after-long-layoff-and-need-to-show-being-employed/351864/ I may be to late answering this. please excuse the late response. New to Zillow, but not Real Estate :)<br/><br/>I would recommend asking a Realtor for 3 recommendations on who that person thinks would be a possible solution for your situation. Some lenders should have no problem while others hands may be tied because of the company they work for has parameters to stay within.&nbsp;<br/><br/><br/>If you want my 3 local (I live in Lisle) loan officers, just contact me and I will be happy to pass out the referral. Loan Officers and Realtors love referrals.&nbsp; Tue, 03 Aug 2010 21:15:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-do-you-do-when-you%27ve-just-started-a-new-job-after-long-layoff-and-need-to-show-being-employed/351864/ 2010-08-03T21:15:00Z up to 850K, 25% equity or ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-do-you-do-when-you%27ve-just-started-a-new-job-after-long-layoff-and-need-to-show-being-employed/351864/ up to 850K, 25% equity or more, 5/1&nbsp;aprx 4%. Up to 1.5M with 30% equity, 4.00% - 4.125%. As a guide, use a debt ratio of 38% for the PITI payment and 45% for total debt ratio.

To clarify, the new position that I'm employed in is within the same field I was in before and is a low 6 figure salaried position.<br/>I will add one other point to this dilemna...I do have a super jumbo loan and have offered to pay it down to the regular jumbo size but even that would not satisfy the current lender at the time I asked for the refi....however to be fair to them at that time (3 month ago) i was not working in a related field to my last long term employment.<br/>Any other comments would be helpful.<br/>Frank Sat, 29 May 2010 04:22:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-do-you-do-when-you%27ve-just-started-a-new-job-after-long-layoff-and-need-to-show-being-employed/351864/ 2010-05-29T04:22:00Z fhudetz, it would help to ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-do-you-do-when-you%27ve-just-started-a-new-job-after-long-layoff-and-need-to-show-being-employed/351864/ fhudetz, it would help to give you information if you came back on your thread and answered some questions. Your profile page shows a listing in Lisle for $1M, if the&nbsp;subject property is listed for sale you will have a much harder time refinancing.&nbsp;Your new job will have to pay&nbsp;enough base salary to qualify on, if commission or bonuses make up a large part of the income then that wont work.

(by FHA standards)&nbsp; If you are using a broker, they will be able to find you a lender willing to do a loan for you.<br/><br/>If you are in a new career, you may be out of luck for a while unless you can tie the two jobs together.&nbsp;&nbsp;If you had any schooling to do&nbsp;the new career, you can usually count that&nbsp;as time on the job if you got a degree/diploma.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 29 May 2010 03:16:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-do-you-do-when-you%27ve-just-started-a-new-job-after-long-layoff-and-need-to-show-being-employed/351864/ 2010-05-29T03:16:00Z Looks to me like you have ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-do-you-do-when-you%27ve-just-started-a-new-job-after-long-layoff-and-need-to-show-being-employed/351864/ Looks to me like you have a Super Jumbo loan with a conventional bank (contact me if you want to know how I think I know this).&nbsp; The Super Jumbo means there is creativity needed and specialization in that kind of product and your current bank may just not be able to be creative enough right now, but that is not the end.&nbsp; I have some other ideas in mind, but the main thing will be to work with a lender who specializes in this type of product since your circumstances are not so unusual for the demographic that would need this kind of financing.

For a loan, you need a new bank or banker. &nbsp;There may be other underlying&nbsp;reasons&nbsp;for not being approved like debt-to-income but sounds like you need to talk to another person.<br/><br/>For modification, it is true there is a net worth element, but there again it's more about the investor (Fannie, Freddie, etc.) than the servicing agent (bank). &nbsp; Sounds like you may not be getting the best advice from those that have an interest in making sure you keep this loan.
