Try calling a few mortgage brokers. They differ from banks I’m told because they have connections with private investors who banks don’t deal with directly.
It was explained to me that they tend to be more flexible on the terms and conditions of the loans.
From what I’ve seen in banks, I was turned off of a major local bank when I was searching for a particular government program. Even their main office didn’t have anybody knowledgeable enough to help me gain info.
Brokers seem to have the underground scoop on what’s available it seems. I only mention this because you mentioned you were struggling with banks and I wasn’t sure if you were including brokers as part of a general comment. Obviously you’re very well versed in this stuff.
Best of luck to ya!
