Mortgage lenders have really helped self-employed borrowers obtain financing by using the bank statement home loan. Approximately 7 years ago is when the bank statement loan became available and it has become the go-to loan product for business owners and self-employed borrowers ever since. Before that business owners were looking for stated income mortgage lenders to finance their home.
Colorado Bank Statement Loans
In 2021, the bank statement mortgage loan is what’s available to business owners in Colorado seeking to buy or refinance their primary home, second home or rental property. For those wanting a mortgage without tax returns it used be a stated income loan but today those are restricted to only investment properties that receive rental income. A big difference with the bank statement loan is the lender is actually verifying you have adequate income to qualify for a home loan but without W-2s, 1099s, or tax returns.
You will need to show proof of self-employment using any of the following: filing of fictitious business name, LLC, corporation, or LP with the Colorado secretary of state. Your business name should be valid and dated two years before applying for a mortgage.
