  • Current financial statement

  • Projected financial statement

  • Home valuation (estimate of property value from an appraiser or other real estate professional in accordance with the laws of your state)

  • Proof of hardship (birth certificate, death certificate, medical bills, divorce papers, or bankruptcy papers, for example)
