Once you leave your job your ability to get loans from a bank is nearly zero. Ironically you can still get an unsecured line of credit or a credit card worth thousands of dollars, but they won’t make a loan secured by real estate.

You need a substantial portfolio of properties and good positive cash flow before they will consider you worthy of a mortgage.

This is why most investors look for owner financing, partners, etc. Once you reach a certain point it’s the only way to progress.

I read recently something that hit home, originally I think it cam from Dilbert of all places. “It’s better to have 100 idiot clients than 1 idiot boss.” Welcome to the club.

Good Luck
