“Bank Statement Loans are NOT for Everyone”

“Bank Statement Loans are NOT for Everyone”

 

 

I did two of them this week and it was the perfect loan for both clients. In both situations they are self-employed and bank statements compared to tax returns are just a different world.

 

In the first case it is a Massachusetts mortgage. The bank statements show monthly deposits of over $19,000, but the tax returns show $46,000 in income and a $296,000 mortgage was needed. This lender isn’t stupid and is willing to do this loan but at a higher interest rate. The payment will be $500 per month higher, but compared to having to pay an additional $25,000 in additional income tax this option was much better for the client.

 

In the second case it is a Florida mortgage. The bank statements showed $8600 per month and the tax returns show a loss for the last two years because of all the real estate holdings. These folks were buying a $355,000 home and putting $110,000 down. Their payment ended up being $435 per month more than a regular conventional loan, but that difference was meaningless compared to the way the tax returns were. In both of these cases that additional $5,000 to $6,000 per year in mortgage payments was a miner expense compared to the taxes they would have had to pay.
