Approved for a loan the second thing that they’re gonna look at is your income now obviously without an income you can’t pay back the loan so the incomes a key piece as well but here what they want to do again is take a look at the history have you had a job how long have you had a job and what is the likelihood of the continuance of that income moving into the

Future it’s a very crucial piece because oftentimes we have different types of income some people get paid by salary w-2 wages others however get commissioned bonus or they’re self-employed so they’re looking for stability and likelihood of that continuance moving forward to make this decision the third area that the investors are going to look at you are assets
