Mortgages for Self Employed - Bank Statement Loan Program

Self-employed borrowers have often had a tougher time obtaining mortgage financing under the traditional full documentation program requirements. Today, for self-employed borrowers that are the sole owners or partial owners of their business or for 1099 workers, we now have a very flexible bank statement program to help them obtain a mortgage loan at competitive terms. Use your bank statements or 1099 earnings statements to qualify with relative ease instead of your Federal tax returns. This particular program provides flexibility in qualifying and also flexibility with major credit events with reestablished and/or reaffirmed credit over the past two years. Self-employed less than two years? See option in bold below.

    • Company organizational docs to verify business has existed for a minimum of two full years. (organizational docs, articles, operating agreement for LLC)
    • Business/Self-employed income will be isolated and averaged on the selected statements to determine a qualifying income for the loan over a 12 or optional 24 month moving average.
    • Expense ratios may default or be set on the basis of the business type/category. An accountant letter is optional to justify a higher gross income with a lower business expense ratio if required.
    • There are no tax returns or transcripts required on this program. Income is determined by business cash flow derived from consecutive bank statements or by 1099 earnings statements.
