Johnny Jet, who is 55 years old, wants to purchase a home in Santa Monica. He needs a $1,000,000 loan to complete the transaction but shows $100,000 yearly income on his tax returns. He currently has $2,000,000 in his investment accounts. The lender will amortize his $2,000,000 over 30 years assuming a 4-5% return. This results in “income” of $10,736, which is added to his verifiable income of $8,333 a month. He now qualifies!
