First National's 6-month Mortgage Hack for Entrepreneurs

As any mortgage pro can attest, income on tax documents doesn't always reflect a borrower's true financial capacity. For entrepreneurs, write-offs, erratic cash flows, and lack of declared income can make traditional income docs as useful as a helicopter ejector seat.

Take six-month bank statement programs, for example, which is where lenders annualize income based on a half year of cash flow—as evidenced by the borrower's bank statements. These flexible programs have been a dying breed at institutional lenders. But First National has brought the program back to life, at least for a while.
