What Are Bank Statement Loans?

Bank statement loans are mortgage loans that lenders issue based on a borrower’s bank statement information and personal information instead of using their tax returns or financial statements which are common income verification methods. Many business owners and self-employed professionals benefit from being able to use bank statement loans because this information is often a more accurate depiction of their finances whereas their tax information only shows net income. In turn, this makes getting a mortgage more accessible to these types of borrowers.

Can I Get a Personal Loan with Bank Statements?

It is possible to get both personal loans and business loans with bank statements and we currently offer both types of bank statement mortgages in Colorado. When applying for a personal bank statement loan, your credit score, outstanding debts, and other factors can also impact your eligibility, but the main factor of eligibility will be your bank statements that should show you make regular deposits and maintain a balance that proves you can handle monthly mortgage payments.

Types of Bank Statement Loans Available in Colorado

We currently offer two loan options for self-employed borrowers:

  • Personal Bank Statements: qualify on 12 or 24 months bank statements. We count 100 percent of deposits as income.
  • Business Bank Statements: qualify on 12 or 24 months bank statements. We count 50 percent of the deposits as income.

In Colorado, a 12-month bank statement loan allows borrowers to qualify with just 12 months of bank statements—and most importantly,  without tax returns. A bank statement loan in Colorado can be used for your main residence as well as investment properties and second homes. 

If a bank statement loan doesn’t sound like the right mortgage program for you, we have a variety of other options including asset-based loans, DSCR loans and VA loans.

Colorado Bank Statement Loan Example

Let’s get a closer look at how bank statement loans in CO work with a real-world example:

In Denver, Colorado, Mitch ran a gas station for more than five years, but because inventory is difficult to track, getting a loan based on financial statements wasn’t an option. Mitch wanted to provide a home for his growing family and was relieved to find Griffin Funding’s Colorado bank statement loan program.

Griffin Funding took two years of Mitch’s bank statements and was able to count 100 percent of deposits as income. With this great new option for a desirable Colorado home loan, Mitch bought a new home just in time for the new addition to the family.
