We understand the mortgage industry is not designed for self-employed people, so we decided to create a mortgage lender that is.
Our team has over a century of collective experience working with business owners, freelancers, and entrepreneurs to help them achieve their financial goals. We understand many self-employed home buyers who receive a pre-approval letter are later denied a mortgage. Because of this, our team performs a full underwriting review up front so that our self-employed customers can have confidence knowing they can close on a home. We provide alternative ways to qualify income, such as using bank statements, 1099 statements, or by using the expected cash flow of a rental property.
At LoanBud, we believe in providing business owners access to capital to grow their businesses. Our team provides loans up to $5 million through the Small Business Association (SBA). We understand that obtaining an SBA loan can be an overwhelming task, so we guide our customers step by step, from application to funding. As an SBA Preferred Partner, we are authorized to make credit decisions internally, which saves our borrowers time and money.
LoanBud is led by Burke Purcell, an industry veteran with nearly 20 years of banking experience who has been specializing in self-employed lending for the last decade.
LoanBud is a Division of BayFirst National Bank, N.A., a Federal Reserve member, and a state-chartered banking institution, offering mortgages and SBA 7(a) loans in all 50 states.
LoanBud’s mission is to become the number one lender in the country for self-employed people by providing mortgages and SBA-backed loans to entrepreneurs, freelancers, and small business owners.
