How does Bank Statement Lending work?
Traditionally, lending institutions have relied on tax returns, 1099’s and credit scores to qualify lenders. Bank Statement Loans change this paradigm by examining business earnings that have been deposited into a business account and/or personal account. Using these deposits as the base qualifiers in lieu of traditional income verification methods, a whole new array of qualified lenders has surfaced.
