    Our new Alt-ATR Mortgage Program, the first of its kind, offers owner-occupied borrowers purchase and refi home loans without requiring income, documentation, employment for their primary homes. Can close in 10 business days.  This is not a stated income loan. This is an equity and asset-driven loan, simple as that. Requires 35% down payment on a purchase, 40% equity on a refinance, at interest rate starting from 5.99%. Interest-only payment option available for the first 5 Years.

    The Alt-ATR home loan is ideal for:

    • Divorcing couples who used to share a mortgage and need to refinance before the final judgment is issued
    • Retired, self-employed, or unemployed individuals
    • Those with irregular pay from professional sports or entertainment, or gaps in employment
    • Owners or employees of cash businesses, such as retailers.
    • Owners of cannabis dispensaries or cannabis-related companies
    • Income derived from sources not deemed legitimate by the federal government
    • Investors of multiple residential properties - no documentation needed.

    This includes income

    • From self-employed people who write everything off on the tax returns.
    • Retired borrowers seeking to tap into the equity of their home.
    • Those with no income but lots of assets and equity.
    • Borrowers with irregular or cash income, and/or lacking income documentation.
    • Those recovering from employment, divorce, foreclosure, short sale, bankruptcy, etc.

    Purchase Loans up to 65% LTV.

    Cash-Out Refinance Loans up to 60% LTV.

    For divorcing couples:

    Here is an example of a common problem in many divorces:  Spouse A and Spouse B, in the process of divorcing, co-own their family house and are both on the mortgage and title. Spouse A was the sole wage-earner. Spouse B was staying home to raise their kids.  Now Spouse B is the sole owner of the house where they and the kids live. Spouse A would like to be off the hook for the mortgage loan.

    Problems for Spouse A: No bank will refi the loan since they are the only income earner. Their name will remain on the mortgage and they will continue to be responsible for paying for the mortgage payment on the home where Spouse B and the kids will live.

    Problems for Spouse B: They cannot refinance the mortgage in to their name in order to remove Spouse A’s name, even after the court judgment is official, for at least 6-12 months.

    Clean break ASAP: We help both Spouses with a smooth transition from divorce to separate lives. We are the only bank who can lend on a home mortgage immediately after divorce, or even during a pending divorce, because we are a community development financial institution with regulatory certifications.

    Even before divorce is stamped by the court, we can refi their home loan, so Spouse A can be off both the mortgage and title. This allows Spouse A to obtain their own new home loan, if they want to, and for Spouse B to have the consistency of being sole owner on record for both the title of the house and the mortgage.\
