    Matt, Nice video, are you preparing for a TV show? I have to agree with this video., my 1st property, i went to the bank armed with numbers for the property, 2 years tax returns, a net-worth calculation prepared by my financial adviser and copies of recent bank statements showing my bank accounts. the loan officers jaw almost dropped when i handed that to her and told her what i wanted to do with the property, the bank took no time getting back to me with an approval. The best advice is to come prepared and act like you know exactly how your numbers are going to work and that they will get their money, let them think you know exactly what you are doing.
