Home loans for freelancers

Simpler mortgages for freelancers

In 2015, Quontic became a US Treasury-designated Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and began its journey to help those who don’t fit the traditional mold. With the CDFI designation, we can accept alternative documentation from borrowers with strong credit and a substantial down payment to qualify. We take your full financial profile into consideration, not just W2s, tax returns and bank statements.
