May 13, 2024 | Posted by: Alex Vinarski

Stated income is bank program designed to help self-employed borrowers to get a mortgage without showing income from tax return. This program also called Alternative A or Alt A mortgage. Borrower will state his income, but will need to provide 6-12 months bank statements showing deposits from the business and business registration. Minimum down payment 20%. 

This program works for purchase and refinancing, and also for rentals as well. Under this program clients can even get Home Equity Visa as a second or first mortgage up to 80% of the property value. 

Borrowers who receive commission income, tips, and even cash income can also get a mortgage under Stated income program. For clients who can't provide bank statements we can arrange private mortgage without any income verification. 

Main advantages of Stated income program:

  1. Minimal documents requirement. Only Banks statements and Business registration. 
  2. Rates are very close to regular bank rates.
