Bank Statement Loans
How Does a Bank Statement Loan Program Work?
Bank Statement Loans allow eligible self-employed borrowers to use bank statements to help verify income instead of tax returns. A lender will use these statements to analyze income to prove the ability to repay a loan.
Not all self-employed borrowers will qualify. Additional documents may be required for Bank Statement Loans eligibility.

What Is the Difference Between a Bank Statement Loan and A Traditional Mortgage Loan?
Traditional loans will generally require tax returns, W-2s and paycheck stubs to verify a borrower’s income. A bank statement mortgage loan offers self-employed borrowers a different option to verify their income without using tax returns.
Are Self-Employed Borrowers Required to Use Bank Statement Loan Products?
A bank statement loan is often a great option for qualified self-employed borrowers. However, self-employed borrowers should choose the best loan product to help meet their mortgage needs.
