Bank Statement Loans allow a self-employed borrower to use the average monthly deposits in his or her business and/or personal bank account – instead of traditional income sources such as pay stubs and tax returns – to demonstrate his or her ability to afford timely mortgage payments.  The program is ideal for self-employed borrowers who – due to substantial business write-offs – cannot qualify for a loan using tax returns for income verification.


Who Would Benefit from a Bank Statement Loan?

Bank Statement Loans are ideal for self-employed individuals and small business owners who cannot provide adequate income documentation in the forms of paystubs, W-2s and/or income tax returns but who can show sufficient deposits in their business and/or personal bank statements.


How It Works

With a Bank Statement Loan, your income is calculated by adding up all the deposits in your business and/or personal account for either a 12 or 24-month period, and then dividing the total by the same number of months.  Any transfers between accounts are not considered.  This method is very effective for business owners because it allows their income to be calculated based on gross deposits for the business rather than on profit or personal income.
