What is a Cannabis Workers Home Loan?
These are essentially the same home loan one would get if they worked in any other industry. Except they are not financed through the regular banking channels are. Federally chartered banks are unable to lend to workers in the cannabis industry. Our lenders are “non bank” lenders meaning that they issue home loans using private funding. The lenders understand the viability of this budding industry and realize that workers in this space should be able to purchase a home for their families like anybody else who is working in a legal space.
Just like any other loan you will still have to qualify using traditional underwriting guidelines. Meaning they will want to see you have minimum credit criteria and income as well as the required down-payment to support the loan payments.
We are able to do loans for all loan types including W2, 1099, and self employed borrowers.
