Social Finance, known as SoFi, is at the forefront of a new way to make home loans. The lender likes to use the adjective "radical" a lot to describe its processes. For anyone who is not a straight W2 earner, that is a really, really good thing.
The company claims it "evaluates applicants based on a holistic view of their financial well-being rather than a three-digit score." What that means to home buyers is that yourFICO score is irrelevant here. Instead, the mortgage lender looks first and foremost at your cash in hand. It wants to see you have at least $1,500 left over each month after you pay all your debts, including your mortgage. Your cash flow is more important to SoFi than your credit score.
The best part: no mortgage insurance, even if you put less than 20 percent down. And there are no application, origination or other lender fees.
SoFi requires less paperwork, which translates into less stress for you.
The lender looks at your finances for the last two years, so if you won MegaBucks last month, you won't qualify. But then, you can probably pay cash for the home you want.

"I do not often write reviews that said, I am writing this review in the hopes that it may sway some in favor of working with Jake.
After a very difficult home buying experience over the course of the last few years, I was finally put in touch with Jake Soteros. Jake was the complete antithesis of all my prior experiences dealing with real estate agents during the home buying process. Jake was patient, knowledgeable, and ready to help in any way he could in order to assist me throughout. I was able to finally find the best home for me and my family, and as a benefit learned a wealth of lessons about real estate, the home buying process, and the market in general from working with him."
