At MortgageDepot, we understand that all qualified borrowers might not have the two-year work history that many lenders like to see. Life happens, even to the most hardworking among us. Sometimes it’s necessary to take an extended absence from your long-time job. Some qualified borrowers are new to their careers but anxious to embark on their real estate journey. Should these people be penalized when they’re seeking a mortgage?

We work with lenders that consider the reasons why a borrower might have less than two years of recent steady employment under their belt. In certain situations, you can secure a mortgage without a two-year work history requirement.

Exceptions to the Rule: Working Around Work History

If you think that your work history might be a barrier to getting the mortgage you need, think again. There are exceptions to the two-year work history guideline, and understanding these exceptions is the key to reaching your real estate goals. Here’s what you need to know:

  • If you have recently returned to work after an extended period, you can show proof of stable employment history before the absence to qualify for a mortgage.
  • If you have started a steady job within the past two years, you can show proof that you completed school or a training program immediately before your employment.
  • If your income is based on a variable hourly wage, you must have a least a 12-month employment history.
