Expatriate Mortgage Loan Programs: Qualification Requirements

Expatriate mortgage loans are portfolio loans and these mortgage loans are held by the mortgage lender’s own investment portfolio.  FHA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac guidelines do not apply on expatriate mortgage loan.  The following are the expatriate mortgage loan lending guidelines:

  • ·         Minimum Down Payment 20% is required for residential single family homes and warrantable condominiums.  Condotel units and non warrantable condominium units require 25% down payment.
  • ·          Mortgage loan amounts up to 1.5 Million is allowed.
  • ·         Valid Work VISA is required to qualify for expatriate mortgage loans.
  • ·         No US Credit Required.  You do not need a credit score nor is any credit required, whether it is traditional credit or non traditional credit.
  • ·         Foreign Assets can be used as Reserves for qualification purposes as long as proper documentation is provided.
  • ·         Pre-Approvals allowed on a To Be Determine Address.  A purchase contract is not required to get a pre-approval and expatriate mortgage loans can be processed and underwritten as a “To Be Determined” subject property.  This way, the mortgage loan borrower gets a full approval prior to entering into a real estate purchase contract.         
  • ·         Pricing is based as if the Borrower (s) has a 740 credit score.  Since the mortgage loan borrower has no credit scores or established credit, all expatriate mortgage loans are given a credit score of 740 FICO.
  • ·         Allowable financing on unique properties such as, Non Warrantable Condominiums, Condo Hotel Units, and Co-Ops. 
  • ·   Expatriate mortgage loans are adjustable rate mortgage,  30 year mortgage loans.  We have 3/1 ARM, 5/1 ARM, and 7/1 ARM expatriate mortgage loans.
