We have some exciting news to share with you! Starting November 1st, 2018, we will be offering bank-statement loans with only 10% down up to $3 million. To make this opportunity even more exciting, real estate is now eligible for asset utilization during approval. This is something that is rarely done; in fact, we’ve never seen a bank offer this before, making it a truly unique opportunity!
Bank-Statement Loans with Only 10% Down for Financing Up to $3 Million
In most cases, large loans require large down payments. We’re not talking large totals, although that is a factor; we’re specifically talking about large percentages of the property’s value. With other loan options, you can get the money you need for a purchase with as little as 3.5% down; in some cases you can get the loan with 0% down. With large loans totaling millions of dollars, however, you are usually required to bring down payments as high as 30%. That’s $300,000 for every $1 million in property value; a property of $3 million would require $900,000 in a down payment!
With this loan option, you still have to bring a sizable down payment, but it’s far less. For a $1 million purchase, you would have to bring a down payment of $100,000. That’s not loose change for anyone, but it’s far more attainable than the previous numbers.
Other Highlights from the Announcement
No Credit Events for Past Three Years Instead of Four or More
A “credit event” is essentially a negative occurrence on your credit history. Many situations can fall under the umbrella of this term, but they most often include a default, bankruptcy, or debt restructuring. However, having a single late payment on your credit score is rarely considered a credit event.
Previously, to be eligible for bank-statement loans, you could not have had a credit event in the past four years; in some cases more. However, with this program that has been reduced to three years.
Real Estate Now Eligible Asset for Utilization
Known in the industry as REO, for “Real Estate Owned,” this is essentially property that you own, whether or not you have a mortgage on the property. This is now eligible to be utilized as an asset for loan qualification. Essentially, if you have a property that you own that still has a mortgage, you can claim the property as part of your assets. However, if there is a mortgage, you still have to factor your payments and debts when applying for the loan.
Cash-Out Refinancing Now Allows Up to $1 Million
Cash-out refinancing is an effective way to use equity in your home to get cash that you can use for a wide variety of purchases. Although it is often used for essential home repairs, it’s possible to use refinancing for other needs, such as investments.
Starting in November of 2018, you can now use cash-out refinancing for up to $1 million, making this a great way to acquire the money you need for various purchases.
DTI Requirement is 50%
Debt-to-income ratio, or “DTI” is an essential part of loan qualification. Lenders want to see that your income is not overly consumed by debts, and, depending on the loan, they will have various restrictions for this ratio. Usually DTIs around 40 to 45% will cause lenders to reject the loan, but with this program you can get a loan with a DTI of 50%. This comes without any additional restrictions, making it a top advantage for borrowers.
12-Month Business Statements Are Eligible
Another highlight of this new announcement is that you can use 12 months of business statements for approval. You won’t have to dig up years upon years of business information to be approved; you’ll only need a single year. This makes approval much more convenient, and can be the difference between approval and rejection for many borrowers.
Express Docs Now Allowed for Wage Earners
To make the process faster and more convenient, express docs are now eligible for the wage earners on the loan. Talk to your lending professional for information on using this option.
Blended Ratios Allowed with Non-Occupant Co-Borrowers
Non-occupant co-borrowers can be important for mortgage applications, but there can be differences in the credit profile of the main borrower and the non-occupant. For example, the main borrower might have a DTI of only 10%, while the non-occupant co-borrower could have a DTI of 55%. Loans to a borrowers with a 55% DTI are rarely allowed by lenders, so this could disqualify the non-occupant, whose income could be essential for approval.
With this program you have the option of blending ratios to increase your chances of approval. Essentially, the ratios are mathematically combined and the DTI used for approval is somewhere in the middle. For example, if the main borrower has a $10,000 monthly income and $2,000 in monthly debt, she has a DTI of 20%. The co-borrower has a the same income but $5,500 in monthly debt, for a DTI of 55%, which may disqualify them from many loans. However, when you combine the two, you have a total monthly income of $20,000 and monthly debts of $7,500, for a DTI of 37.5%. This blended ratio, which is well within the bounds of many loans, can then be used for approval.
Bank Statement Calculation Allows for Expense-Ratio Option
The expense-ratio option can be used for approval, and with this new program, you can use bank statements in your calculation. Expense ratio is a calculation of how much a fund’s assets are used for operating expenses, and it’s an important number for lenders. This option could create borrowing options for many different borrowers.

EXCEPTIONAL, SUPER EXCEPTIONAL! The most professional, accountable and committed mortgage service we have ever worked with. With numerous experiences in buying and refinancing homes, by far Chad Baker and his team remain at the top of our list. We feel very blessed to have located such a committed company who serve their clients with an exceptional first “first class” mindset.
I was referred to Chad by my Realtor for a purchase of a new house. The experience with Chad and the team (I mainly worked with Juliann) was nothing short of outstanding. From start to finish there were always quick to respond and when needed, notify me of any new documentation that was required. There were very helpful explaining to me the pros and cons of different financing options as well as some other loan related issues, such as termite clearance outside the purchase contact and septic tank certification process. Overall, very knowledgeable and processional team. Loan preapproval was done in a single day and loan documents were ready for signing in 21 days, which was 9 days ahead of schedule. That never happened to me before.
“Juliann – Thank you very much for your patience and help with everything. I can say 150% that we could not have gotten through this without you. I have been through this process before a few times BUT never have received this type of care/attention. This process is intense and you managed to humanize this life changing experience for us – rather than being a loan number. If you or Home Point ever need an official recommendation from us, you can count us in.”
