How to Qualify for a Mortgage using Commission Income


Do you earn commission income? Having a hard time qualifying for the mortgage you want?

Real estate agents and insurance brokers are two common businesses that tend to be 100% commission based. Lenders consider commission income with a bit more risk than other types of self-employed business income.

Three things to consider when seeking a mortgage using this type of income:

  1. Some lenders do not accept commission income for qualifying purposes. It is important to realize this niche and choose the right lender for your specific income type. A lot of frustration will be avoided by selecting the right lender.

  2. Documentation is key. Save those T4As and your employers’ commission reports for the last 2 years. Be able to distinguish between gross and net commission amounts.

  3. Some of these niche lenders will consider up to 100% of your commission income and there are solutions for borrowers with poor credit.
