I am in grad school, graduate in May, and have a written job offer including salary that I will start in September. I know that here in Arizona I need a pay stub as proof of income before I buy a house on the market. Is that different if I want to buy a new home and where it won’t close until after I start working? Will the loan officer and builder go for that?

3 Thoughts on Even if I’m not currently working, can I start building a house if I will be working before the move-in date?

    Got cash? Do as you please.

    To get a mortgage, you need 20% down, plus all closing costs, plus 3 – 6 months of reserves, 3 years track record on your job, credit score above 700. Anything less and you run serious risks of not being funded by closing – that’s happening lately at rates never before seen.

    Rent. Jobs are still vanishing. No telling if that written offer will hold up 6 months from now.

    No lender will give you a loan until you can demonstrate 2 years of stable employment.

    in order to get any loan you must be employed and have proof of the income should be continuing at least so your answer right now is no
