Loan Scenario

Non-QM is a great way to help a borrower on the road to financial health. Our Non-Prime product came to the rescue for a borrower who needed a cash-out refinance. They had a mid-score of 560 and high balances on credit cards. Their 401K had to be liquidated after their spouse passed away after enduring a long illness. The cash-out refinance allowed them to pay off a first and second mortgage plus $42,000 in consumer revolving and installment debts. Along with helping them pay off all of their debt we waived the reserves entirely. This very grateful borrower ended up with significant savings each month!

What is a non-prime mortgage?
Non-prime is a term for loans that do not fit into the restraints of government lending requirements. These loans are ideal for borrowers who have had recent credit events, such as a foreclosure, bankruptcy, or short sale that have caused lower credit scores.
Can I get a mortgage with a bad credit score?
Yes, Angel Oak offers non-prime mortgage programs for borrowers with bad credit scores provided the borrower can show a documented ability to repay. Bad credit scores can be caused by a multitude of major life events that may be outside of a borrower’s control, such as a natural disaster, health or family emergency, and may not actually represent a potential borrower’s credit worthiness.
Does AOMS offer conventional / government mortgage programs?
No, Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions offers exclusively non-QM loan programs that fall outside of the guidelines for conventional and government mortgage programs. Our non-agency products are designed for borrowers who are self-employed, purchasing a home over conforming price limits, or who may have had a credit event that caused their credit score to decrease.
