What are Non-QM Loans?
Non-qualified mortgages (often referred to as non-QM loans) are products that are designed to potentially accommodate specific categories of “non-traditional” home loan borrowers. When certain regulations were implemented in response to the subprime mortgage crisis, there was a gap left in the consumer mortgage market. This gap left some borrowers – namely, real estate investors and the self-employed – unable to attain the mortgage loans they needed in order to finance the purchase of a home.
Likewise, other applicants found their access to financing cut off because of minor blemishes on their credit reports; for these individuals, even non-conforming loans were off limits. In response, some mortgage lenders took initiative to fill the widening gap and provide expanded options for these consumers. What they developed was a collection of mortgage products now categorized as non-QM.
