[Bonus Episode] Office Hours: Using Gift Funds from a relative to Help Qualify for a Mortgage

Typically, when a person is applying for a new loan, they will be asked to provide statements from any bank accounts or investments as a means to show the lender where their down payment will come from when it’s time to close on the loan.

On this episode of Office Hours, Malcolm and Desiree sit down to discuss what makes this situation unique and how to navigate it.
