However, my employer will be extending it for another 3yrs. That process will be initiated by end of this month. I have an accepted offer on buying a house and am working towards the P&amp;S right now. Closing date is scheduled for end of July 2013. We are in a good position financially and making a down-payment of more than 40% towards purchasing the house.&nbsp;<br/><br/><div>My question is:&nbsp;<div>Will I qualify for the mortgage? when my current stamped H1b expires shortly?<div>I will be having a valid approved visa extension (I-797) by the time of the closing date. I have been on H1B for last 3yrs (with 2 visa extensions) &amp; my credit scores ate 740+.&nbsp;<br/><div>Will the lenders accept a valid I-797? &nbsp;After all, it is a valid legal permit to live &amp; work in the US.&nbsp;<br/><br/>Any info on this would be greatly appreciated!!!</div></div></div></div> Wed, 22 May 2013 22:06:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-H1B-visa-expires-next-month-What-are-the-chances-of-me-closing-on-a-loan-within-a-week/452438/ 2013-05-22T22:06:00Z Did you get loan approved ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-H1B-visa-expires-next-month-What-are-the-chances-of-me-closing-on-a-loan-within-a-week/452438/ Did you get loan approved anyways?

You can also provide your i-797.

You will need to show proof of extension or request of extension. If this is first time expiring then you may need the extension to proceed. If you have history of prior extension(s) then a request may suffice at underwriter discretion. Please call me direct as myself and my team would be happy to assist you. Do you have a house and a executed contract yet?&nbsp; Tue, 24 Jul 2012 21:05:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-H1B-visa-expires-next-month-What-are-the-chances-of-me-closing-on-a-loan-within-a-week/452438/ 2012-07-24T21:05:00Z I would speak to a lender ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-H1B-visa-expires-next-month-What-are-the-chances-of-me-closing-on-a-loan-within-a-week/452438/ I would speak to a lender about what you would need. If your Visa is expiring and you dont have proof of your new one, its going to be tough to get a loan. Its very risky.
