Can I Qualify for a Mortgage with a Short-Term Fellowship or on an F-1 Visa?
In this episode, Emily shares a few clips from the first-time homebuyer QaA that she hosted with Sam Hogan on May 6, 2021. Sam is a mortgage originator with Prime Lending specializing in graduate students and PhDs, an advertiser with Personal Finance for PhDs, and Emily's brother. The first pair of questions is on whether having three years left on your fellowship offer is required to get a mortgage. The second pair of questions is on qualifying for a mortgage if you're on an F-1 visa. These questions are among the most common that Sam receives.
