An asset-based mortgage loan, also known as an asset depletion mortgage loan, is a type of non-QM loan that allows borrowers to use their substantial assets to qualify for a mortgage loan instead of employment income. Your assets are used as collateral for paying back the loan instead of your income. This type of asset-based lending uses different forms of assets, including money market accounts, checking or savings accounts, certificates of deposits, retirement accounts (such as 401K or IRA) or investment accounts such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Borrowers that can benefit from an asset-based loan include those that are self-employed with insufficient traditional, verifiable income, retirees with insufficient verifiable fixed income or individuals with a large number of assets in the U.S.

Asset-Based Loan FAQs

An asset-based loan, or asset depletion loan, is a non-QM mortgage that allows borrowers who do not want to use their income from employment to qualify but rather the significant assets they possess. 

Asset depletion is calculated by dividing your total assets by a determined period of months, to calculate the monthly “income” used to qualify for your home loan.

Assets that can be used to qualify for an asset-based loan include savings and checking accounts, money market accounts, retirement accounts, and investment accounts. To calculate your monthly “income” for qualifying, you can typically use 70% of stocks, bonds, and retirement funds and 100% of cash accounts.
No, you only have to demonstrate an ability to make the mortgage payments.
