Why should I choose a non-traditional loan?

If you are paid in cash (restaurant server, landscaper, hair stylist, massage therapist), a non-traditional loan may be your only loan option available. Alternatively, if you recently retired and have several million dollars in savings but do not have a recurring monthly income source, a non-traditional loan may be the right fit for your new mortgage.

Brightwire also offers programs that exclude W2’s and tax returns from income calculations in case you have a tax professional that is aggressive with tax write-offs.

The reason to choose a non-traditional loan is that it will likely be the most affordable option available for borrowers that cannot qualify for a traditional conventional loan.
