What is a Bank Statement Loan Program?
A bank statement mortgage program allows you to verify your income on a mortgage application using documented bank deposits instead of tax forms.
Traditional mortgage loans use tax returns, W2s, and pay stubs to verify monthly income.
The higher your monthly income, the lower your debt-to-income ratio (DTI), and a lower DTI can justify a higher loan amount.
But providing those traditional employment documents will be impossible for people who don’t have full-time employers. Instead, mortgage applicants may opt for a bank statement loan program.
We require a minimum of 12 months of bank statements. Keep in mind that applicants who can provide 24 months of statements may qualify for better rates and terms.

A bank statement mortgage allows 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.
