Both articles highlight how non-QM is the only option for borrowers who don’t meet prime standards, such as the self-employed borrower, and how we are different from any other lender in the market. 


Decreasing Refinance Volume
Refis are starting to slow based on what we see as well as what is being reported by the Mortgage Bankers Association’s Weekly Application Surveys. Each article talks about how Angel Oak and non-QM will support growth once refinance volume slows significantly.
