Asset Depletion Mortgage

Asset Depletion Mortgage Loan

If you have a lot of assets, but make little-to-no income, an asset depletion loan may be for you. Asset Depletion loans are also known as “asset based mortgages”. Some people even refer to them as “no income, high asset loans”.  

How Asset Depletion Loans Work

To calculate the total amount of your assets, you can use 100% of what is in liquid (such as bank accounts) if borrowers are 59.5 and older.

The retirement funds are calculated at 50% of face value if borrowers are less than 59.5 years old.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What type of assets may be used to qualify?
    You may use any of the following assets: bank accounts (checking or savings), money market accounts, a CD (certificate of deposit), investment accounts (such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds), and retirement accounts (such as a 401k or IRA).

    Must I be a certain age to be eligible, or are there any certain age restrictions?
    No, there are not any age requirements to be eligible.  There are two potential ways that your loan application may be dealt with differently though, based on your age.  The first is if you are over the age of 59.5, you should be able to use 100% face value.  The second potential scenario is if you are younger (under age 59.5), may you use your retirement accounts as eligible assets at 50% of the face value.  

    Are these mortgages available for investment properties?
    Yes.

    What if my assets / accounts are jointly owned?
    If you have joint ownership of bank accounts or other assets, commonly this will not be an issue. There is a chance that an underwriter may reduce the amount of the assets that are eligible. It will be left to the underwriter to decide. 

    Are asset qualifier loans available for jumbo loans?
    Yes, jumbo financing is available.

    Is it possible to get an interest only mortgage with an asset qualifier loan?
    No, not at this time.

    Can I finance a home with an asset qualifier loan using a corporation name?

    What types of properties are eligible for asset qualifier loans?
    You may finance the purchase of any single family residence, 2-4 unit property, condominium, condotel, or co-op (cooperative housing).

    What is the minimum down payment possible with an asset qualifier program?
    The minimum down payment is 20%, which is an LTV of 80%.

    Is mortgage insurance required on an asset qualifier loan?
    No, mortgage insurance is not required, since the LTV is below 80%.

    Is it ok if I am not employed and/or retired?
