A Deeper Dive Into Our Bank Statement Program

A number of scenarios leave mortgage loan officers uncompensated for their time, ranging from denied applications due to small credit anomalies to mortgage interest rates just slightly above your competitor. Mortgage loans can fall through due to a number of factors, leaving both the prospective home buyer and the mortgage originator at a loss. Mortgage brokers and lenders are often left feeling defeated when a home loan application is denied, wishing there were some way to help their clients qualify for homeownership.

Alternative lending programs provide options for these mortgage loan applicants. And our bank statement program helps entrepreneurs, freelancers, small business owners and self-employed borrowers qualify for a home loan. These people have thriving businesses and have the income to pay a mortgage loan.

The alternative lending process is a more innovative and modern one, considering the creditworthiness of each residential mortgage applicant to determine mortgage loan eligibility. Top wholesale mortgage lenders allow mortgage loan brokers to evaluate borrowers by their ability to repay the mortgage loan over time. When mortgage applicants are self-employed or have had recent credit events, evaluating each residential mortgage borrower holistically can make a difference in whether or not the applicant is approved.

Using wholesale mortgage programs can help residential mortgage applicants obtain mortgage solutions despite non-prime qualification. Utilizing alternative mortgage lending programs can have a powerful impact upon your business. The process of buying a home and obtaining a residential mortgage loan is not a one size fits all process. Wholesale mortgage loan financing options depend largely on the volume of the loan, whether the residential mortgage loan applicant will put down a small mortgage down payment or a large mortgage down payment, the credit of the home loan borrower in is question. The combined income of the mortgage borrower or borrowers, the history of paying off installment loans, and information about bankruptcies, foreclosures, and short-sales can come into question.

Even after qualifying for a wholesale mortgage loan, the goals of the residential mortgage borrower need to be considered – whether they are interested in a traditional mortgage loan structure, an adjustable interest rate schedule, or an interest-only alternative mortgage loan. If no satisfactory mortgage solutions or conventional mortgage loans through institutional mortgage lenders are possible, private alternative mortgage loan options become a necessary part of any mortgage broker’s arsenal.
